2023 ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award
Deadline: February 5, 2023.
Each year, the International Center for Journalists honors outstanding colleagues with the ICFJ Knight International Journalism Award at our Tribute to Journalists. We are now seeking nominees whose pioneering coverage or media innovations have made an impact on the lives of people in their countries or regions. Candidates can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers or citizen journalists. Those who meet the award’s criteria may nominate themselves. Please submit your nominations by Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023.
Our 2022 ICFJ Knight Award winners were Salvadoran Carlos Dada, Afghan Anisa Shaheed and a trio of Ukrainian journalists: Mstyslav Chernov, Evgeniy Maloletka and Vasilisa Stepanenko. Dada’s trailblazing news organization, El Faro, is a beacon of fearless, high-quality, independent journalism, shining a light on injustice in El Salvador and beyond. As a reporter for Afghanistan’s TOLOnews, Shaheed worked courageously to cover major stories, breaking taboos with her reporting and persevering through challenges as an Afghan woman journalist.
The award reflects the mission of ICFJ’s Knight Fellowships, which spread news innovation to better engage communities and improve lives. The program is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
