Apply for the $5,000 Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism
Freelance journalists and local reporters in developing countries are invited to apply for the 2018 Kurt Schork Memorial Fund (KSMF) awards in international journalism.
Since its inception in 2002, the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund has sought to support those journalists whose work is often poorly paid, mostly unsung and all too often fraught with danger.
Today, the three annual awards, for freelance and local journalism and, since 2017, for newsfixers, are recognised worldwide as a mark of excellence and have an established track record for brave reporting on conflict, corruption and injustice.
Each award is for $5,000 and will be presented at a prestigious ceremony in London in late October or November 2017.
Since 2009, the awards ceremony has been hosted at the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s main offices in Canary Wharf, London.
The deadline for entries is midnight (GMT) on Wednesday, May 31.
