A couple of additional details about v. 2.0 of the most comprehensive college media online contest evah!

First, the fee will be a flat $30 per school for entries. We will have a limit of entries per category per journalist, just to keep folks to submitting their best work.

Second, and more importantly, we have two new categories! Multimedia Journalist of the Year and Web Editor of the Year!

Multimedia Journalist of the Year: Recognizes continuing excellence by a single college media staff member. Contestants must submit the URLs of three projects which they designed/wrote/edited in any of the other contest categories. Focus will be on use of new/multimedia to report journalistically.

Web Editor of the Year: Recognizes continued excellence in developing the web presence of a college media outlet. Contestants must submit the URL of the web site, along with an explanation of steps they took to ensure quality in design and multimedia use on the web site. Special projects such as databases, Flash packages and the like will be considered. Also, a letter of recommendation from an adviser or editor in chief.

The official form to enter will go up later this week. We’ll let you know when it’s ready.
