The White House Correspondents' Association℠ is pleased to announce competition for the Aldo Beckman Award for presidential news coverage. The prize recognizes a correspondent who personifies the journalistic excellence as well as the personal qualities exemplified by Aldo Beckman, the award-winning correspondent of the Chicago Tribune and former WHCA president.
Tips for Winning:
The award will be based on a correspondent's reporting during the year ending December 31, 2013. Journalistic excellence will be the primary criterion. However, the judges may wish to honor an outstanding young reporter, a reporter who has demonstrated repeated excellence in White House coverage over a long period, or a reporter who personifies the human qualities exemplified by Aldo Beckman. Judges may also choose to make no award in a given year.
