Call for Nominations: ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award 2020

Call for Nominations: ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award 2020

Application Deadline: February 21, 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.

They are now 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.

Their 2019 ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award winners were Rose Wangui, a Kenyan television reporter who covers tough or taboo subjects that few other journalists dare to touch, and Stevan Dojčinović, a Serbian investigative reporter who has exposed abuses at the highest levels of power. His reporting has made him a frequent target of threats and personal attacks.

The award reflects the mission of the ICFJ Knight Fellowships, which help spread news innovation and counter disinformation. The program is supported by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The winners will be honored at ICFJ’s Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 12, 2020.
