Call for Nominations: Knight International Journalism Awards

Cuban independent blogger Yoani Sánchez and Indian investigative reporter Priyanka Dubey received the Knight International Journalism Award in 2015.

Each November, the International Center for Journalists honors outstanding colleagues with the Knight International Journalism Award at our annual gala in Washington, D.C. We’re now seeking nominees who, despite difficult circumstances, produce pioneering news reports or innovations that have great impact.
