  • All submissions must have been published between October 1, 2018, and September 30, 2019.
  • Submissions must relate to the natural environment in at least one of the six states where SELC works: Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee or Virginia.
  • Submissions are due by October 1, 2019, at SouthernEnvironment.org/submit.
  • Journalism entries must be at least 3,000 words and may consist of a single article or a series of articles.
