Nominations are now invited for the Shorenstein Journalism Award 2021.
The Shorenstein Journalism Award, recognizes outstanding journalists who have spent their careers helping audiences around the world understand the complexities of the Asia-Pacific region, defined broadly to include Northeast, Southeast, South, and Central Asia and Australasia. Award recipients are veteran journalists with a distinguished body of work. News organizations are also eligible for the award.
An annual tradition, the Shorenstein Journalism Award alternates between recipients whose work has mostly been conveyed through American news media and recipients whose work has mostly been conveyed through news media in one or more parts of the Asia-Pacific region. Included among the latter candidates are journalists who are from the region and work there, and who, in addition to their recognized excellence, may have helped defend and encourage free media in one or more countries in the region.
The award carries a cash prize of US $10,000.
Nominees must be journalists with an outstanding track record of covering the complexities of the Asia-Pacific region.
The award alternates between recipients whose work has mostly been published in Asian news media and those whose work has mostly been conveyed through American news media. The 2021 award will recognize a recipient from the former category.
Both individual journalists and journalism organizations are eligible for the award.
A nominee’s body of work may cover any Asia-Pacific region. For the award, the Asia-Pacific region is defined broadly to include Northeast, Southeast, South, and Central Asia and Australasia.
