Journalists who have published their work in Latin American or Caribbean news outlets can compete.
Instituto Prensa y Sociedad and Transparency International organize the Latin American Investigative Journalism Award. The award's purpose is to encourage greater transparency in government, business and media.
Investigative stories published or broadcast between Nov. 1, 2016 and Aug. 31, 2017 in English, Spanish or Portuguese are eligible. Print, online, television and radio reports may compete, and reporters can submit work done independently or in teams.
The first place winner will receive US$10,000, and the second and third places, US$5,000. Authors of the best investigative reports will also be invited to the Latin American Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN 2017) in November in Buenos Aires.
The deadline is Oct. 1.
