The Oklahoma Society of Professional Journalists Professional Chapter supports working journalists across the state. The chapter is a chapter of the national Society of Professional Journalists. Membership supports local and national journalism efforts.

The Oklahoma SPJ Pro Chapter works to advocate, educate and create opportunities for journalists. Whether it is working to ensure access to public documents or helping reporters learn more about specific topics, the organization strives to build the capacity and quality of Oklahoma journalism.

The local chapter is of SPJ Region 8. We continue to work to increase our membership and provide networking opportunities for media professionals with our members.

Our largest activity every year is the annual Oklahoma SPJ awards contest. This is a time when the best in print, broadcast, digital and public relations work is honored by peers. This event is also the primary fundraiser for the chapter. The deadline for entries for the contest is Feb. 21.
