The “Bogdan Tirnanic” Award is given for comments or columns, while the special award "Zika M. Jovanovic" is given for contribution to the history of the press and journalism, for theoretical works on journalism and journalistic work.

Among the awards for which the competition was issued is the AJS Golden Charter, which is awarded for many years of work and contribution to journalism and the development of the journalistic organization. 

The competition for the JAS "Aleksandar Tijanic" Award is underway, too, which is given for combativeness in journalistic expression and which has been awarded since 2015 for texts, articles published in print, electronic or online media, as well as for a journalistic move that would merit this award.
