Journalists can enter a competition with a US$50,000 prize.
The John Chancellor Award, sponsored by Columbia University, is given to a reporter with courage and integrity for cumulative professional accomplishments.
Applicants must be nominated by someone else and must provide five to 10 work samples. The main audience of the work should be in the United States, but entries in languages other than English are accepted as long as translations are provided.
The deadline to submit a nomination is April 19.
