The Arizona Press Club is a nonprofit organization of professional reporters, editors, photographers and designers from publications across the state. Our goal is to promote excellence in journalism through an annual contest, training seminars, scholarships and networking events.
Journalists are considered eligible to compete in the Arizona Press Club contest or join the board if they work in the production of news for any Arizona newspaper, online news site, periodical or news service whose primary purpose is to inform the public rather than to sell products or promote a business, government, nonprofit organization or ideology.
