Journalists whose reporting or innovations are making an impact on their communities can be nominated for an award.
The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) seeks nominations for the Knight International Journalism Awards.
The awards honor journalists who, despite difficult circumstances, produce pioneering news reports or innovations that make an impact on the lives of their countries or regions.
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 Fellowships, which create and spread news innovation to better engage communities and improve lives. The program is supported by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The winners will be honored at ICFJ’s awards dinner on Nov. 7 in Washington. Each winner will receive a US$10,000 cash prize and a crystal trophy.
Candidates who meet the awards criteria may nominate themselves. The deadline has been extended to March 1.
