Bastiat Prize Honors Journalists Who Support Free Society

Posted By Rob Bluey On June 25, 2011 @ 10:58 am In Scribe | Comments Disabled

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Bastiat Prize for Journalism [1], 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 [2] included Bret Stephens [3] of the Wall Street Journal and James Delingpole [4], 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 [5].

There’s a separate award for journalists whose work focuses on regional U.S. issues. The R.C. Hoiles Prize for Regional Journalism [6] also has three awards: first ($10,000), second ($4,000) and third ($1,000). Its entry deadline [5] is also July 31.
