The Florida Bar’s Media & Communications Law Committee is suspending nominations for the Parker Thomson Media Awards.

The original April 3 deadline will be extended to a later date that will be announced in the near future.

The Florida Bar’s Media & Communications Law Committee has presented awards for stellar legal journalism for more than 60 years. The Committee will resume operations and call for entries as soon as possible.

Qualified entries highlight the system of law and justice as it affects Floridians. Any newspaper, radio station, blog, television station, wire service or online-only publication located in Florida is eligible to enter. Entries must have been published or produced between Jan. 1, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2019. Content of entries may be current or historical, objective or analytical in nature. Special consideration may be given to entries that demonstrate courage or tenacity on the part of the news medium or the journalists who produced the entry.
