Environmental journalism contest accepting entries [Worldwide]

Posted on Feb 4, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Journalists who have completed environmental reporting can submit their work.

The Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) is accepting submissions for its annual recognition of excellence in environmental reporting. The awards honor journalists in 10 categories, including feature story, investigative reporting, explanatory reporting and book.

The first place and second place winners in each category will receive US$500 and US$250, respectively. The winner of the Nina Mason Pulliam Award for the "best of the best" environmental reporting will receive US$10,000.

International journalists are also encouraged to enter, but if their work is written in a language other than English, they must include an English translation with their entry.

The fee for each submission ranges from US$15 for SEJ members to US$110 for non-members. Journalists residing in low-to-middle-income-economy countries can pay US$10.

The deadline for submissions is March 1.
