> Washington, D.C., July 14, 2009 â€” The 2010 Daniel Pearl Awards competition, which honors the worldâ€™s best cross-border investigative journalism, has begun accepting entries. The awards are granted by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), a project of the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, D.C.
> Formerly the ICIJ Awards, the prizes were renamed in 2008 in honor of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was slain by militants in Pakistan in 2002.
> Held biennially, the competition is open to any professional journalist or team of journalists of any nationality working in any medium. To be eligible, the investigation â€” either a single work or a single-subject series â€” must involve reporting in at least two countries on a topic of world significance. A five-member jury of international journalists will select the winners.
> Two $5,000 first-place prizes will be awarded, one to a U.S.-based reporter or news outlet, and another to a non-U.S.-based journalist or news outlet. Five additional finalists will each receive $1,000 prizes.
> The awards are unique among journalism prizes in that they specifically honor cross-border investigative reporting. Past winners have included a TV4 Sweden investigation of Russian overfishing in the Barents Sea, a South African Broadcasting expose of an Anglican bishop accused of conspiring with the Rwandan government to kill Tutsis, and a New York Times series on deadly Chinese counterfeit drugs. Last yearâ€™s awards attracted 86 entries from 24 countries, involving reporting in more than 60 countries.
> The awards will be presented at the 6th Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 2010.
> Entries must be mailed by January 15, 2010. Submissions from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged. There is no entry fee. For further information and awards criteria, please visit ICIJâ€™s Daniel Pearl Awards website.
> The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) was launched in 1997 as a project of the Center for Public Integrity to globally extend the Center's investigative style of journalism in the public interest. Based in 50 countries, ICIJâ€™s global network includes 100 of the worldâ€™s top investigative reporters who produce collaborative, cross-border reports on major global issues around the world. ICIJ also supports international investigative journalism by presenting the biennial Daniel Pearl Awards for Outstanding International Investigative Reporting. www.icij.org
