Today is the public’s last day to vote for the Philadelphia News Awards

This is the voting form for the fifth annual Philadelphia News Awards organized and hosted by the Pen and Pencil Club, the country’s oldest surviving, open daily private press club.

This form for online voting will be open from Mon. Nov. 19 until Fri. Nov. 30, 2018. You can vote as many times as you like, but we discourage ballot stuffing. To vote, you must provide a valid e-mail address; your email won’t be used by us or shared with third parties. We ask that only local journalists and members of the club vote. You do not need to vote for every category. Prior winners were barred from being nominated in the same category.

Nominations were taken from the public, and from those the Pen and Pencil Club board narrowed the nominees down to five finalists per category. Winners of the popular vote will be announced at the Philadelphia News Award ceremony held Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 at 7 pm at the Pen and Pencil Club, 1522 Latimer Street. Only members are allowed at the awards event. If you’d like to attend, we invite you to join the club now – your membership will be good through the end of 2019. Find the 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 nominees and winners here: http://penandpencil.org/awards
