Editors. They’re the unsung heroes of the newsroom. They can spend hours working with a reporter, shaping and guiding a story, helping elevate the piece to something exceptional...and all without a byline!  

PRNDI's "Editor of the Year" award is designed to recognize an individual who exemplifies the very best in story editing and newsroom leadership. Is there someone in your newsroom who regularly helps reporters improve copy, avoid errors, and approach stories more creatively? Is your editor a mentor and teacher who consistently pushes reporters to up their game? Let us know.
