About the Award

The PFWA’s Dick Connor Writing Awards encompass news, game stories, columns, features, enterprise features and blogs written by PFWA members.

The yearly award period begins after the Super Bowl and continues through the following year’s Super Bowl.

The awards are named for Connor, a former PFWA president and the organization’s 1991 Dick McCann Award recipient, who worked for the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News. He started at the News in 1961 and moved to the Post in 1965. He went back to the News in 1982, but returned to The Post in 1988, where he worked until his death in 1992.
