2012 Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism

The Kurt Schork Memorial Fund is now seeking entries for its 2012 annual awards in international journalism. Awards will be presented in two categories: local reporters covering events within their home country or region, and freelance journalists covering international news. Entrants can submit up to three articles each.

Articles must have been published between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. The stories can focus on conflict, human rights, cross-border issues, corruption, or any other controversial matter in a particular country or region. Each submission must demonstrate professionalism, meet international journalistic standards, and provide evidence that courage and determination were required to cover the story.

Each winner will be presented with a US $5000 cash prize at a ceremony in London, UK, in November 2012. The deadline is May 31, 2012.
