Kurt Schork Awards

The Kurt Schork Memorial Awards uniquely honour the contributions of freelance journalists covering foreign news and reporters from the developing world and countries in transition. Since 2005, IWPR has been honoured to partner with the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund to administer and organise the annual awards.

A freelancer himself, Kurt Schork appreciated the obstacles and concerns of freelance journalists who work without the institutional or financial safety net of large news organizations and yet are usually first on the scene, often taking greater risks to keep the public informed. The Awards include cash prizes of $5,000 each per local and international winner as financial support to help them with continued reporting.

The Awards thus honour Kurt’s own legacy by supporting the continued excellent work of other brave freelancers. Nominees are judged not only on the quality of writing and investigative effort, but also on the level of courage and resourcefulness demonstrated in producing the stories – reflecting the journalistic standards and personal courage displayed by Kurt himself over the course of his distinguished career.
Details for applicants

Two Award Categories:

*Local Reporter covering local stories,
*Freelance Journalist covering international news.

Prize is $5,000 USD for each category winner.

All submissions must demonstrate professionalism, meet international journalistic standards, and provide evidence that courage and determination played a role in generating the articles. Winners will be chosen by an international panel of judges.

Local Reporter: Print journalists employed by a local news outlet and residing in a developing country or nation in transition (non OECD or EU countries), whose work has been published in a local publication are eligible. Although individual journalists are the primary focus, submissions from a team of journalists will also be considered.

Freelance Journalist: All freelance print journalists and those contracted by news organisations are eligible. A freelance journalist is an individual who is not employed by a news organization. They are self-employed, providing services, either on the basis of time or on the production of editorial materials as defined by individual contractual arrangements, and earn the majority of their income from journalism.

Eligible media: Entries are welcomed from all types of print-based media including newspapers and magazines and established on-line publications. Blogs and personal websites are not eligible.
