Associated Press Sports Editors needs judges for the upcoming digital contest.
The contest will be judged in four categories from Aug. 1 to Dec. 31. During that period, there will be two separate mandatory two-week windows (chosen randomly), during which judges will be required to look at every website at least once. Judges will also be allowed to look at websites at their leisure during the rest of the year.
A top 10 and honorable mentions in each category will be revealed at the start of the Winter Conference in February 2019.
If you are interested in judging, please contact Lisa Wilson, APSE second vice president, by July 17 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please make sure to indicate the news organization where you currently work and what category that organization falls in based on circulation numbers when dues for 2018 were paid last fall. (NOTE: Your category is determined by average daily circulation for news organizations with a daily print product or by unique monthly visitors for news organizations which do not have a daily print product.)
Here are the categories:
Category A: Over 100,000 circulation/more than 2 million unique monthly visitors (website)
Category B: 30,001 to 100,000/from 750,001 to 1.999 million unique monthly visitors
Category C: 15,000 to 30,000/from 250,000 to 750,000 unique monthly visitors
Category D: Under 15,000/less than 250,000 unique monthly visitors
Judges also need to include their work and cell phone numbers.
