DEADLINE: Maria Moors Cabot Prizes

Event Date: 
March 16, 2019

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 is Mar 16, 2019. The honorees are announced in the summer and will receive a Cabot medal and $5,000 honorarium.

The Cabot Prizes Board 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.
