Investigative journalism contest seeks submissions [Latin America, Caribbean]

Posted on August 09, 2018

Deadline: 

September 16, 2018

Journalists who have published their work in Latin American or Caribbean news outlets can compete.

Instituto Prensa y Sociedad and Transparency International, with the support of Organization of American State (OAS) and Open Society, 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 Sept. 1, 2017 and Aug. 31, 2018 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 2018) in November in Bogotá, Colombia.

The deadline is Sept. 16.
