2010 Kurt Schork Awards

  • #1
    Abstract : "Applications are invited for this year’s Kurt Schork Awards celebrating the best in international and local journalism with two US$5,000 prizes. One is for freelance print journalists covering international news and the other for local reporters in developing or transitional countries who show courage and commitment in covering controversial issues.

    The stories can focus on conflict, human-rights concerns, cross-border issues or other controversial issues in a particular country or region.

    Underwritten by the Kurt Schork Memorial Fund and Thomson Reuters, the prizes honour Kurt Schork, an American freelance journalist who was killed in an ambush while on assignment for Reuters in Sierra Leone in May, 2000."
