About the Awards

The Deadline Club Awards recognizes the best journalism produced by journalists and media organizations based in New York. Winners compete for a coveted “Rube” statuette, designed by legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg. The statuette, designed in 1968, was Rube’s idea of a dead line—shown in three dimensions.

Those winners will be recognized on Thursday, May 16 at the historic and exclusive Harvard Club of New York City, 35 West 44th Street. Click here for a list of finalists.
