Groundbreaking journalists can be nominated for an award.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) seeks nominations for the Knight International Journalism Awards.

The awards are designed to honor journalists who, despite difficult circumstances, produce pioneering news reports or innovations that have great impact on the lives of people in the developing world.

Nominees can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers, citizen journalists or bloggers who are from and work in Africa, Asia, Central/Eastern Europe, Latin America/Caribbean or the Middle East.

The award reflects the mission of ICFJ’s Knight International Journalism Fellowships, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The fellowships are designed to advance media innovation worldwide.

The winners will be honored at ICFJ’s awards dinner on Nov. 8, 2018 in Washington. Each winner will receive a US$10,000 cash prize and a crystal trophy.

The deadline is Feb. 18.
