Latin American and Caribbean journalists can submit entries for investigative reporting prize

The Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and Transparency International, with funding from the Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation, are accepting nominations for the 2010-2011 Latin American Investigative Journalism Award.

Journalists from Latin America and the Caribbean have until May 14 to submit their stories published in 2010 that contribute to greater transparency in government, business, or media. Pieces may be authored by individuals or reporting teams.

The three best pieces will receive prizes of $15,000, $10,000, or $5,000. Judges will consider the importance and news impact of the investigation, how it is presented, and the project’s overall quality.

The prize will be presented during a special ceremony at the Latin American Conference for Investigative Journalism in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

For more details, see the award’s description on the IPYS website (in Spanish).
