The Chicago Headline Club Lifetime Achievement Award is an annual award recognizing journalists for their extraordinary contribution to the community and/or the profession. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors those journalists who tirelessly work to cover, report, edit and tape the news day in and day out.
Lifetime Award recipients recognized by the Headline Club are journalists known primarily for their work in Chicago or who have worked primarily in Chicago media.
Nominees come from various aspects of the media, including print, broadcast, the trade press and Web-based publications.
A nominating committee appointed each year by the Headline Club president seeks out nominations both from inside and outside of the journalism community. The Headline Club board then votes to approve each year’s honorees.
To nominate someone, email the Chicago Headline Club at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Jan. 18, 2016.
