The 2010 Daniel Pearl Awards competition is now accepting entries to honour cross-border investigative reporting on a topic of world significance. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) renamed the prizes in 2008 in honour of "Wall Street Journal" reporter Daniel Pearl who was killed by militants in Pakistan in 2002.

The competition is open to any professional journalist or team of journalists of any nationality working in any medium. The reporting must involve at least two countries. A five-member jury of international journalists selects the winners. Past winners have reported about abuses faced by immigrants in American workplaces; the involvement of Sweden in the CIA secret renditions program; and allegations of sexual exploitation of Congolese women and children by United Nations peacekeepers

Two US$5,000 first prizes are awarded: one to a U.S.-based reporter or news organisation and the other to a non-U.S.-based journalist or news organisation. Five US$1,000 finalist awards are also given.

Submissions from Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East are especially encouraged. Deadline: 15 January 2010.
