Call for Journalists: Richard M. Clurman Award 2022

Deadline: March 1, 2022

Was there an on-the-job mentor who made a difference in your journalism career and the careers of other journalists? Nominate them for the Richard M. Clurman Award 2022.

The Livingston Awards, a program honoring journalists under the age of 35, recognizes that every young journalist succeeds with the guidance and support of an experienced journalist. The Richard M. Clurman Award honors these on-the-job mentors who stand out for nurturing, critiquing and inspiring young journalists. Through their commitment, these individuals make a vital contribution to fostering excellence in journalism.

The Clurman Award stands alongside the Livingston Awards in bolstering the work of young journalists and developing the next generation of reporters and newsroom leaders. Named for Richard M. Clurman, an editor at Time from 1948 to 1972 and architect of the Livingston Awards program, the Clurman Award is presented each June at the annual Livingston Awards ceremony. Since the award’s inception, Clurman Award recipients have included journalists such as Tom Brokaw, Judy Woodruff, Gwen Ifill, and Paul Steiger, to name a few.
