Public Service Award

Recipients of the Alaska Press Club Public Service Award marshall resources above and beyond what is expected. The mere existence of a publication or a program is not sufficient grounds for nomination.

Anyone may nominate a journalist or newsroom for their service to the public. Individuals may nominate themselves or their newsrooms.

Deadline for nominations is March 12, 2018.

Please email a letter, up to 250 words in length, explaining the purpose of the reporting and the result. Supporting materials may also be provided. The work described in nominations may have been entered in the Alaska Press Club Contest as well. Email nominations to

There is no contest entry fee associated with this nomination process.
