The National Association of Real Estate Editors has put out a call for entries for the Robert Bruss Real Estate Book Awards Competition, and for NAREE’s annual Journalism Competition for real estate and home and design writers and editors.

Winners of both competitions will be recognized at NAREE’s 47th annual spring real estate conference, to be held June 5-8 in Atlanta. 

Now in their sixth year, NAREE’s Book Awards are named for the late Bob Bruss, a syndicated real estate columnist, prolific writer, and longtime NAREE leader and mentor who enjoyed reviewing real estate books and was instrumental in building NAREE’s membership.

The deadline to enter books published in 2012 in the Book Awards is April 1, 2013. Books broadly related to real estate are eligible for the competition, on topics including mortgage finance, homebuying and selling, the business of real estate, government housing policy, green building, urban design, investing, architecture and construction.

Entry fees are $100 for NAREE members, and $125 for nonmembers. A panel of three judges will choose Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners, and a First-time Author Award.

The March 1 deadline is fast approaching for NAREE’s 63rd Annual NAREE Journalism Competition for work published or aired in 2012.

A total of 75 Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be given in 25 categories. The Journalism Competition is open to entries published in daily newspapers, weekly business newspapers, trade, investment and shelter magazines, commercial real estate publications, wire services, television, radio and websites.

The NAREE journalism competition will be judged by faculty of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University on clarity of writing, objectivity, originality, depth of reporting, and graphic design and production, if applicable. NAREE President Kris Hudson of the Wall Street Journal and Vice President Daniel Taub of Bloomberg News will officiate at the June 7 awards ceremony in Atlanta.

NAREE’s Atlanta conference wiill offer professional development sessions and newsworthy panels and speakers, and is expected to draw journalists from around the country.

"Meet the Press" sessions, which match editors and journalists with freelancers and publicists in a series of three-minute meetings, will be held Friday afternoon.
