DEADLINE: Fetisov Journalism Awards

Event Date: 
August 1, 2020

The Fetisov Journalism Awards, founded by Russian philanthropist Gleb Fetisov in 2019, aim to promote informed, ethical and committed journalism that is both stylish and has public purpose. It makes the world a better place, it enriches the social, economic and cultural lives of citizens, and, above all, it reinforces the role that journalists and independent media play in protecting democracy and the rule of law.

There are four categories: contribution to peace, contribution to civil rights, investigative reporting and environmental journalism. Materials must be published in printed media, posted on media websites or media outlets.

First, second and third place winners in each category will receive CHF100,000 (US$103,800), CHF20,000 (US$20,755) and CHF10,000 (US$10,377), respectively.

Entries are open to professional journalists, i.e. representatives of the media, professional journalism organizations (unions/associations/societies) and freelance journalists. Self-nominations are allowed.

Deadline: Aug 1, 2020.
