Nominations to the Hall of Fame should be sent to Dean Ridings (email@example.com) and should provide a brief biography of the nominee’s contributions to Florida journalism. Nominees are eligible for selection to the Hall of Fame normally no earlier than the third year following their retirement or death. The Florida Newspaper Hall of Fame Committee will meet once a year to review the nominees. The deadline will be announced in the Florida Press Association’s e-bulletin, but entries are usually due by May 1 for inclusion in that year’s Hall of Fame.
