Motto for journalism in six words or less is running a contest to come up with a motto for journalism.

The contest was inspired by a similar one run by Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of “Freakonomics,” in which people submitted a new six-words-or-less motto for the USA. The winner: OUR WORST CRITICS PREFER TO STAY.

Contestants can submit their entries through e-mail to Roy Peter Clark (link available at the Poynter site). He’s suggested a few to get the ball rolling. My personal fave: ALL THE NEWS NO LONGER FITS.

UPDATE April 25: Finalists have been chosen and you can vote on your favourite.
