2022 National Championships
May 20 – 26, 2022
The 62nd annual Hearst National Journalism Awards Championship is the culmination of the 2021-2022 monthly competitions in writing, photojournalism, audio, television and multimedia held at 103 AEJMC-accredited journalism schools across the country.
29 finalists with top scores from the 1,255 competition entries gathered in San Francisco to demonstrate their skills in assignments selected for them by the program judges.
This was the first in-person Championship after a two-year pandemic hiatus.
The judges evaluated the finalists’ work Wednesday morning, and winners were announced at the Championship awards ceremony held in the Gold Ballroom of the Palace hotel that evening.
