Journalists can apply for an award honoring socially conscious reporting.

For over 50 years, the Sidney Hillman Foundation has awarded the yearly Hillman Prizes in Journalism.

In 2009, the Foundation inaugurated the Sidney, a monthly award for an outstanding piece of socially conscious journalism, specifically investigative work that fosters social and economic justice.

Deadlines are the last day of the month in which the piece was published/aired. In the case of magazines, please nominate according to the issue date on the publication, not when it first appeared.

Journalists can submit their own work or nominate others.

Recipients are awarded US$500, a bottle of union-made wine and a certificate designed by New Yorker cartoonist, Edward Sorel.
