2003 awards in international journalism
Applications are being accepted for the 2003 Kurt
Schork Awards in International Journalism. Two prizes
worth $10,000 each will be awarded to a freelance
journalist covering foreign news and a reporter in a
developing nation or country in transition.
The 2002 local reporting award was given to a team
from Gazeta Wyborcza (Poland) and the freelance
journalist award was given to Carlotta Gall.
The prizes were established by the Schork family
in honor of American journalist Kurt Schork, who was
killed in 2000 while on assignment for Reuters in
Sierra Leone. The awards are supported by Reuters and
administered by the Columbia University Graduate
School of Journalism. The winners will be judged not
only on the quality of writing and investigative
effort, but also on the level of courage and resourcefulness
demonstrated by the applicants.
The deadline for applications is 1 May, 2003.
There is no entry fee. Award criteria and entry
forms are available at the web site:
