E&P and LMC to Host “EPPYs LIVE” to Announce 2020 EPPY Award Winners and Finalists!

Free Live Broadcast: Tuesday, October 27th at Noon ET Register at

Now in its 25th year, the Editor and Publisher (E&P) EPPY Awards celebrate the best in digital media across 38 diverse categories. “This was our biggest ‘EPPYs’ in 10 years,” said Editor & Publisher Mike Blinder. “We had over 450 entries from more than 150 media companies and universities, worldwide.”

Forty-four judges participated in reviewing this year’s entries, under the leadership of Christian A. Hendricks, President of the Local Media Consortium (LMC). “We are honored to be a part of the EPPY Awards, one of the biggest events for recognizing quality digital journalism, including journalism that is local,” said Hendricks. “With the explosive growth of digital media over the last decade or so, and as journalists this year face an enormous crisis in our country, it is an especially important time to laud our hard-working journalists and their achievements.”

Blinder and Hendricks will be hosting a live broadcast to announce the winners on Tuesday, October 27, at 12 Noon ET. This year’s EPPY finalists will be invited to the presentation. Anyone can attend the event by pre-registering at
