SELC’s Reed Environmental Writing Award: Call for entries

The Southern Environmental Law Center is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Phillip D. Reed Memorial Award, which recognizes the most powerful voices speaking on behalf of our region’s environment.

Each year during the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, SELC presents the Reed Award for outstanding writing in two categories: journalism and nonfiction book. Readers, writers, and publishers are all welcome to submit nominations, which are due October 1, 2015. Entries must have been published during the previous 12 months (October 1, 2014, through September 30, 2015) and must pertain to the environment in at least one of the six states in SELC’s region: Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Once again, the winners will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges that includes some of the leading environmental writers, journalists, and advocates of our time. Please visit Reed Environmental Writing Award for more details and instructions.
