Contest seeks human interest reporting [US]

Posted on Jan 14, 2019 in Specialized Topics

Print, broadcast and digital journalists can compete for an award.

 The Meyer "Mike" Berger Award, administered by Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, recognizes reporters for an outstanding example of in­-depth, human interest reporting. 

Entries must have been published in the United States in 2018. In the case of an ongoing story, work that appeared in January 2019 will be accepted. Journalists who report in a foreign language must submit copies of original stories with an English translation.

The winner will receive a US$1,500 prize at the School’s Journalism Day ceremony in May.

The deadline is March 4.
