DEADLINE: Maria Moors Cabot Prizes

Event Date: 
March 20, 2020

The Maria Moors Cabot Prizes, founded in 1938, are the oldest international awards in journalism. The prizes recognize journalists and news organizations with a distinguished body of work that has contributed to Inter­-American understanding. Deadline for nominations is Mar 20, 2020.

The Cabot Prizes Board, comprised of journalists and educators concerned with hemisphere affairs, looks for exceptional and courageous reporting that impacts society, and evidence of commitment to important stories over the course of a long and distinguished career. They are particularly interested in journalists and news organizations that have made a sustained contribution to Inter­-American understanding through their coverage of the Americas. The board also seeks nominations for journalists who have taken active roles in upholding freedom of the press in the Americas. Although awards have been given to publishers and other managers, the board is especially interested in honoring individual journalists.

The Cabot Prizes Board will judge the entries. The Trustees of Columbia University, on the recommendation of the dean, will choose the winners. The honorees are announced in the summer and will receive a Cabot medal and $5,000 honorarium.
