The Horace Greeley Award is a prestigious regional American journalism award that recognizes excellence in the print media of New England. It is administered by the New England Press Association in Boston, Massachusetts.
Horace Greeley was an important New England newspaper editor and publisher. He is most well known as editor of The New Yorker, and as founder of The New York Tribune. He also served a term in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1848 and was a presidential nominee in 1872.
The Horace Greeley Award is presented by a committee of members of the New England Press Association and is awarded annually. The committee has the right, however, not to present the award if in the opinion of the committee a suitable candidate has not been nominated.
