  • Bastiat Prize Honors Journalists Who Support Free Society

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Bastiat Prize for Journalism, an award that recognizes writers who promote and defend the principles and institutions of the free society. The competition is open to journalists from around the globe.

    First place is a prize of $50,000, followed by a second-place prize of $15,000 and third place worth $5,000.

    Last year’s winners included Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal and James Delingpole, blogger for The Telegraph.

    The International Policy Network administers the competition and is currently accepting applications. Submissions must be received on or before July 31. Entrants must use the online form.

    There’s a separate award for journalists whose work focuses on regional U.S. issues. The R.C. Hoiles Prize for Regional Journalism also has three awards: first ($10,000), second ($4,000) and third ($1,000). Its entry deadline is also July 31.

      The winners can't be too proud as there isn't really that much competition. You won't see it going to anybody at NYT (I can't even bring myself to type the full name) or Washington Post. Nice to know that conservative bloggers are in with a good chance as well.
