Deadline: February 21, 2020
Applications are invited for the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Awards 2020. Each year, the International Center for Journalists honors outstanding colleagues with the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award at their annual gala in Washington, D.C. At a time when journalists worldwide are under fire, the award raises the public profile of the winners and their courageous reporting.
The ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award recognizes excellent reporting that makes a difference in the lives of people around the world. Recipients of the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award are reporters, editors, technologists, media managers or citizen journalists who, despite difficult circumstances, produce pioneering news reports or innovations that make a significant impact in their countries.
The Award, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, reflects the mission of ICFJ Knight Fellowships: to instill a culture of news innovation worldwide. The goal is to seed new ideas and services that deepen coverage, expand news delivery and engage citizens in the editorial process. The fellowship program is supported by Knight Foundation, with additional funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
- Award winners receive a trip to the United States, where they will be honored at ICFJ’s Awards Dinner on November 12, 2020.
- They are seeking nominees whose pioneering coverage or media innovations have had tremendous impact.
- Candidates can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers, citizen journalists or bloggers.
- Candidates who meet the awards criteria may nominate themselves.
