- Entries may be a single story, a photograph, an editorial or a commentary; a series of stories, photographs, editorials or commentaries; or a body of work by an individual journalist.
- Submitters should consider all aspects of the journalistic process: reporting, writing, editing, headlines, photographs and illustrations, and presentation.
- The guidelines for the Taylor Fairness Award do not offer a definition of fairness. This is deliberate, recognizing that elements of fairness in journalism are diverse and do not easily lend themselves to a precise definition for a journalism competition.
- There are many ways to define work that can be held up as an example of fairness, so it is very important that the letter sent with the nomination explain clearly why the entry is an exemplary example of fairness in newspapers and how the work was developed, reported and presented to readers in the context of fairness.
- All submissions should include an application form and five copies of the entry.
Nominations must be postmarked no later than Friday, February 5, 2010, for work published in a U.S. daily newspaper or on the paperâ€™s Web site during the previous calendar year.
