OC Press Club Accepting Entries for 2020 Awards Contest

The Orange County Press Club is now accepting awards contest entries for work published during the 2019 calendar year.

The annual awards contest is a great opportunity for professional journalists in Orange County to submit work for evaluation against other journalists in the region.

The awards gala where the award finalists are announced is also a unique moment each year for Orange County journalists to gather, network, relax and recognize the important role media plays in the community.
