The 2015 Kurt Schork Memorial Fund Awards in International Journalism is accepting submissions.
Entrants have until midnight (GMT) on May 31 to submit three separate stories.
Local reporters and freelance journalists (see definitions below) working anywhere in the world may enter, provided their entries meet the submission criteria set out below. You can use an online form to send your article(s) or download a .pdf form for printing, completing and posting with your entry.
Entries received outside the submission period will not be accepted under any circumstances.
2015 Submission criteria:
Submitted articles must have been published between June 1, 2014 and May 31, 2015.
Accepted media: any print-based medium, such as newspapers and magazines, or established online publications. Blogs, personal websites and social media pages or channels are not accepted.
Articles can encompass war reporting, human rights issues, cross-border troubles, corruption or other controversial matters impacting on people’s lives. Judges will be looking for professionalism, high journalistic standards, and evidence of dedication and courage in obtaining the story.
Three separate articles must be submitted
Because of problems with scanned entries and failed links in previous years, we require that each article must be provided as a text file – MS Word (.doc or .docx) or similar text format (.rtf), or a PDF of a text file.
You may supply a URL link to your article(s), or a scan (as a PDF or JPG file) as supporting evidence of the publication context, but your entry will be automatically disqualified if you do not also submit the required text files
