Print and online journalists worldwide can apply for an award.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation hosts the Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism, honoring international freelance reporting and local journalists who face risks in covering the news.
Named in honor of the American freelance journalist killed in a military ambush while on assignment for Reuters in Sierra Leone in 2000, the awards are made annually by the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund (KSMF).
The awards feature two categories: freelance journalists covering international news and local reporters covering events in their home country or region. Each winner receives a US$5,000 prize at a ceremony in London.
The stories can be about conflict, human rights, cross-border issues or any 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.
All articles must be translated into English. Submit entries, a resume, photo and brief statement about the story by May 31.
