The non-profit International Network of Golf conducts the contest, recognizing the best and brightest among its media members. You can join ING and become eligible for the contest by visiting inggolf.com and click on Membership. Anyone who joins before this Media Awards deadline will be eligible for this year and next year’s media awards program.
Of the 12 categories in the ING Media Awards, eight are for writers, including a new category this year, Feature Writing. That category is for stories that do not fit into any of the remaining writing categories: Travel Writing, Business Writing, Opinions/Editorials, Profile Writing, Equipment/Apparel Writing, Competition Coverage, and Books.
Other categories include, Excellence in Publications, TV and Radio (two categories).
Judging is done by a panel of three independent experts in each category. Judges are selected by Individual Category Chairs. Where possible, by-lines and publication names are stripped from the articles before they are sent to the judges.
Winners will be announced and honored at the ING Media Awards Presentation Press Conference in January at the PGA Merchandise Show.
Rules, regulations, category descriptions, entry forms and past winners can be found under Awards on the www.inggolf.com site.
ING is the golf industry’s only media-based networking organization. “ING is where media and the golf industry connect.”
