- Writing – For any script, screenplay, or composition of multi-media production related to Abraham Lincoln.
- Film or Video – Of which the member had intellectual/artistic control and was released in the stated year.

If to a person, he or she must have been a member while the performance was given, when the film/video was released, or script/book/article, etc., was published. If to a production (e.g., play, film, book), the work must be composed/written/acted in by a member(s) of the ALP. Receipt of the Excellence Award would bar the recipient from eligibility for three subsequent years.
Preferred frequency would be one single award per year, but the committee would have the authorization to NOT issue an award if no one/no work was found to merit an award during that year.
Method of Choosing:
The president appoints a committee of three or five members. A given committee serves for one year. Service on the committee in a prior year would be no bar to an award committee appointment. Anyone (ALP member or non-ALP member) could nominate a member for consideration to any awards committee member.
