DEADLINE: SAJA Journalism Awards

Event Date: 
August 22, 2020

The South Asian Journalists Association and SAJA Group Inc. invite individual journalists and news organizations in North America to participate.

The SAJA Journalism Awards recognize excellence in coverage of South Asia and the diaspora, as well as outstanding reporting by South Asian journalists and students in the U.S. and Canada. The Awards, with multiple categories, are open to journalists, media companies and freelancers headquartered in the U.S. and Canada.

This year, we have introduced two new award categories that recognize the two biggest events of 2020 — the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. In these two specific categories, we are accepting nominations for work that is produced between January 1-July 15, 2020. Nominations for all other categories should include work produced in 2019.

Deadline: Aug 15, 2020 extended to Aug 22

Winners will be awarded in our online awards event on October 3, 2020. Yes, mark your calendars!
