Best of 2019 Awards Banquet

For the first time in Press Club history, we are canceling this year’s awards banquet due to the threat of coronavirus. The banquet, which was scheduled for April 25, simply posed too great a risk to hold on that date, gathering together journalists from all over the state.

We’ll miss you all! But we will still announce the award winners on the same schedule; stay tuned for news of the winners around April 25th. The full list of winners will be announced and will be posted on the Idaho Press Club website on that date, at And your awards will either be delivered or shipped to you.

The Journalists Institute on Covering the Courts, which had been scheduled for the same date at the Idaho Law & Justice Center in downtown Boise, will be delayed until fall, and will instead be held in conjunction with the Idaho Press Club’s annual fall conference. Stay tuned for more later on the timing; it likely will be a Saturday in October.

We’re sorry to have to take these steps, which were approved unanimously this week by the Idaho Press Club board. Stay healthy, everyone, and we’ll be in touch.
