Call for entries for 2010 Kurt Schork Awards

The Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism celebrate freelance and local journalists who show great courage and commitment to reporting on controversial issues in a developing country or nation in transition. The deadline for applications is 13 July 2010.

Two prizes of US$5,000 are up for grabs, one to a freelance journalist covering international news and the other to a local journalist - for stories that focus on conflict, human rights concerns, cross border issues, or any other issue of controversy.

Funded by the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund and Reuters, the prizes honour Kurt Schork, a US freelance journalist who was killed in a military ambush while on assignment for Reuters in Sierra Leone in May 2000.
