The Kurt Schork Memorial Fund (KSMF) is now accepting submissions for its 2017 awards in international journalism.Each award is for $5,000 and will be presented at a prestigious ceremony in London in late October or November 2017.
The 16th annual call for awards is therefore now split into three categories:
- A Local Reporter award that recognizes the often over-looked work of journalists in developing nations or countries in transition who write about events in their homeland.
- A Freelance award for those journalists who travel to the world’s conflict zones, usually at great personal risk, to witness and report the impact and consequences of events.
- A News Fixer award rewarding local journalists and/or experts, hired by a visiting foreign reporter or news organization, whose guidance and local knowledge materially benefited the content, impact and reach of the stories submitted.
- A Local Reporter
- A Freelance
- A News Fixer
Application Deadline: May 31, 2017
