NCM 2022 Awards

NCM would like to acknowledge all the hard work our Collective has put into producing stories in the year of 2022 by rewarding their efforts. We have four categories of awards to present. The first is the Top Story of 2022. During the year, one top story was selected each month by our panel of judges. You can now vote for which of these 12 is your favourite! The top three selected will receive $200.

The second category is our Top First Byliner, awarding a member who began writing with us in 2022 and has shown great progress by contributing high-quality stories on a regular basis. Our third category is Top Web Hits, awarded to the story that received the most clicks. Our final category is Top French Story, awarded to the top French article of 2022 chosen by our French Editor. Each of these winners will receive $200.
