To mark this milestone, we’re expanding and refining the Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting. Starting with this 2020 contest, we will award two Toner Prizes – one for national political reporting and one for local political reporting. Each Toner Prize carries a $5,000 honorarium.
With the 2020 elections already underway, we also are refining our criteria to emphasize the frequent, regular reporting on campaigns, candidates and elections that was Robin Toner’s special passion. The Prizes will not be limited to near-daily campaign coverage. But judges will give extra weight to it.
