Entry Window Opens for Inaugural TAB News Awardsposted on 1.03.2022
- Final Deadline: Feb. 10
TAB has begun accepting entries for the inaugural Texas Broadcast News Awards, with a final deadline set for midnight on Thursday, Feb. 10. English and Spanish-language entries showcasing work done in 2021 will compete head-to-head in this successor program to the Texas AP Broadcast Awards. Awards will be presented in-person April 9 in Austin.
The new awards take the place of the Texas Associated Press Broadcast Awards which have been discontinued. TAB salutes the AP for their longstanding commitment to advancing quality broadcast journalism.
Plans for the new awards program were first announced at the Annual Business Meeting during the TAB Show Aug. 3-4 in Austin.
The Texas Broadcast News Awards program reflects the insights and experiences of nearly a dozen Texas news directors, journalists, and contest administrators, taking the best elements of the former AP program and refining them further.
English- and Spanish-language stations are invited to submit entries for evaluation by bilingual judges in 19 categories.
Awards are grouped by market size, with one group representing the state’s four largest media markets and another group representing all other markets.
TAB is recruiting practicing and retired bilingual judges from throughout the country to assess Spanish and English entries alike.
Individuals interested in judging entries should contact TAB’s VP, Member Services Beth Bobbitt.
