SELC calls for submissions for Phil Reed Environmental Writing Awards

SELC is now accepting submissions for the 2020 Phillip D. Reed Environmental Writing Awards. Nominations are welcome from anyone, including readers, authors, and publishers.

Presented each year during the Virginia Festival of the Book, the Reed Awards recognize outstanding writing on the southern environment in two categories: the Book Category for works of nonfiction (not self-published) and the Journalism Category for newspaper, magazine, and online writing published by a recognized institution such as a news organization, university, or nonprofit group.

  • 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.
