We are now accepting submissions for our 2015 awards!
The Institute on Political Journalism presents three cash prizes annually for the best newspaper, magazine, online news site or blog stories in three categories: investigative, economic and collegiate. All awards will be presented during a ceremony at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on June 19, 2015.
Professional writers or writing teams may apply for either the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting or the Award for Excellence in Economic Reporting. Deadline: March 20, 2015
Collegiate journalists may submit an entry for the Collegiate Journalism Award. Deadline: April 3, 2015.
All awards are sponsored by IPJ, an intensive summer study and internship opportunity in Washington, D.C. This eight-week program is designed for students looking for professional, hands-on training in print or broadcast journalism.
IPJ is an academic internship program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies. Each year, approximately 100 of the nation's brightest college journalists are chosen to spend the summer in Washington, D.C. They intern at major news organizations throughout the nation's capital, attend site briefings at various government institutions, hear lectures from Washington's leading reporters and editors and take courses in economics, ethics and leadership at George Mason University.
