The Deadline Club has been serving the cause of New York City journalism for 86 years. The Club sponsors one of the city’s most prestigious journalism awards programs; its coveted “Rubes,” distinctive statuettes designed by the late Rube Goldberg, are awarded at a dinner each spring. At that dinner, scholarships are awarded to some of the city’s most outstanding journalism students. The scholarships are funded through the Deadline Club Foundation. The Club also maintains the New York Journalism Hall of Fame and elects and inducts its members.
The Deadline Club in New York City is one of the largest chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists. Our members include professionals working in broadcast, print, online and journalism education.
