Immigration Journalism Award
The French-American Foundation’s Immigration Journalism Award is the first award to specifically honor excellence in the coverage of immigration and integration issues worldwide.
The Immigration Journalism Award recognizes outstanding journalism on the topic of immigration and integration. This initiative was launched in 2011 with the support of the Ford Foundation with the goal of bringing increased national and international attention to the topic. Additional support is also provided by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Florence Gould Foundation, Fondation TF1 and Air France.
2013 Submissions Now Open
The French-American Foundation will recognize the work of two journalists – one based in Europe, the other in North America – with a monetary award for best immigration reporting. Award recipients will be invited to attend and speak at a ceremony in November 2013 in New York, where their work will be celebrated in the presence of renowned media professionals.
The online application is available here. DEADLINE: FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2013 at 12 PM EST
The French-American Foundation is seeking meaningful, visionary stories on under-reported topics with a strong social justice component. The Foundation particularly seeks both creative content and format, and all types of stories will be considered (local, global, cultural, economic, etc.). Journalists can apply individually, and teams can also apply for a single award. Journalists of all nationalities can apply, as long as the work submitted for consideration is in English or French and was published by a U.S. or European media no earlier than January 2012.
