Journalists whose reporting or innovations are making an impact on the lives of people in their countries or regions can be nominated for an award.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) seeks nominations for the 2021 ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award.

Nominees can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers or citizen journalists 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.

The winners will be honored Nov. 9 at ICFJ’s 2021 Tribute to Journalists. 

Candidates who meet the awards criteria may nominate themselves.

The deadline is Feb. 21.
