Submit a Nomination for the 2020 ICFJ Knight International Journalism Awards

The International Center for Journalists honors outstanding colleagues each year with the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award. Nominations for this year’s award closed last month, however we have decided to reopen them in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the biggest and most important story of the year with broad implications for journalism and the world.

We are therefore seeking nominees whose pioneering coverage or media innovations around COVID-19 have excelled and had tremendous impact. These will be added to our existing pool of nominees. Candidates can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers, citizen journalists or bloggers. 

Please send us nominations by 11:59pm EDT Sunday, April 5, 2020.

Award winners receive a trip to the United States, where they will be honored at ICFJ's Awards Dinner on November 12, 2020. 

Nominees may be contacted by ICFJ for additional information. Please direct any questions to Monica Lopez,
