Best of 2019 Awards Banquet

Annual Awards Winners To Be Announced Saturday

In these uncertain times, good journalism matters more than ever. So we’re very proud to announce the winners of this year’s Idaho Press Club “Best of 2019” Excellence in Journalism awards, which will be unveiled this Saturday, April 25th. Normally, the awards are handed out at our gala awards banquet, but that, of course, had to be canceled this year due to the coronavirus. Nevertheless, the awards will be announced on the same date, with the announcement happening online. The big unveil of the full list of winners is set for 2 p.m. MT on Saturday on our Idaho Press Club website.

Mix up a “quaran-tini” or a tall glass of something cool, and relax at home while you check out the awards, text friends, and share the news on social media. As always, the hashtag for the event will be #idahopress.  

Your award plaques and certificates will be delivered to you over the course of the following week or two. We can make some available for curbside pickup in Boise by arrangement; and ship others where needed. Please contact Press Club Executive Director Martha Borchers,, about arrangements, and to let us know the best shipping address, now that many offices are closed.

Everyone who entered this year’s contest should be proud of the quality journalism all have been producing under difficult circumstances. You’ve earned these awards. Congratulations!
