WBUR, BU Seek Entries For 2013 Schorr Prize
WBUR and Boston University announce the Call for Entries for the 12th annual Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize. The deadline for entries is Friday, Sept. 6, 2013.
The Prize is an award of $5,000 given to a rising journalist in public radio for a news story or segment – whether broadcast, podcast or published online, using any combination of audio and other media – of significance and quality. By sponsoring this award, WBUR hopes to inspire a new generation of journalists to stretch the boundaries of the medium and encourage journalists in training to choose public radio as a career path.
We are guided by the vision and example of the late Daniel Schorr, who gave American journalism a lifetime of commitment through his insight, intelligence and integrity. Dan was greatly honored to have this award carry his name. He believed strongly in supporting talented journalists as they rose through the ranks of the broadcast industry — particularly young journalists who have found a calling in public radio. All entrants must be 35 or younger as of June 30, 2013.
