The 44th annual National Magazine Awards are now open for submissions.

Writers, photographers and illustrators who do freelance work for magazines are all eligible to submit their work for one of the 18 writing and visual award categories, which include feature writing, investigative reporting, fiction, photography and many more.

The gold medal winner in each category receives a $1000 cash prize.

If your publisher isn’t planning to submit your work, you can submit it yourself. The awards foundation offers freelancers a discount on entry fees with the Freelancer Support Fund, which allows freelancers to submit two entries for the price of one.

The call for entries is open until January 28, 2021.

For more information about the categories, rules, and submissions process, check out the National Magazine Awards Foundation’s website.
