Posted on Dec 27, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Journalists worldwide who produced work that appeared in U.S. media can apply.

Long Island University is accepting nominations for The George Polk Awards. The annual awards honor special achievement in journalism.

Stories published or presented in 2021 are eligible for submission. Judges place a premium on investigative work that is original, requires digging and resourcefulness, and brings results.

Entries should be submitted by category – foreign, national, etc. – but these categories are by no means binding.

Winners are chosen from newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online news organizations.

The entry fee is $50.

The submission deadline is Jan. 5, 2022.
