The ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award recognizes excellent reporting that makes a difference in the lives of people around the world.
Recipients of the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award are reporters, editors, technologists, media managers, or citizen journalists who despite difficult circumstances, produce pioneering news reports or innovations that make a significant impact in their countries.
The Award, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, reflects the mission of ICFJ Knight Fellowships: to instill a culture of news innovation worldwide. The goal is to seed new ideas and services that deepen coverage, expand news delivery and engage citizens in the editorial process. The fellowship programme is supported by Knight Foundation, with additional funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
- The winners will be honored on November 2 at ICFJ’s Tribute to Journalists 2023 in Washington, D.C.
- They seek nominees whose pioneering coverage or media innovations have a significant impact on the lives of people around the world.
- Candidates can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers, or citizen journalists.
