US Journalism Awards
***2015 deadline extended to Monday, Feb. 9th***
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards honor those who report on issues that reflect Robert F. Kennedy's concerns including human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action in the United States and around the world. Entries include insights into the causes, conditions and remedies of injustice and critical analysis of relevant public policies, programs, attitudes, and private endeavors.
Established in December of 1968 by a group of reporters covering Robert Kennedy's presidential campaign, the awards program has far exceeded theexpectations of its founders. Led by a committee of six independent journalists, the Awards are judged by more than fifty journalists each year. It has become the largest program of its kind and one of few in which the winners are determined solely by their peers.
The 2015 RFK Journalism Awards will open for submissions on November 18, 2014. The deadline to enter is February 9, 2015.
