ASJA Launches COVID-19 Writing Awards

from ASJA

ASJA has launched its Crisis Coverage Awards: COVID-19 Edition, the first GLOBAL awards program recognizing writers for their coverage of the COVID-19 outbreak. WRITERS WORLDWIDE may find more information and rules and submit their work here. Submissions will be accepted until July 3.

WRITERS are invited to submit English-language articles, including self-nominations, published between January 1 and June 30, 2020. Teams of leading journalists will judge submissions based on quality of writing and reporting and whether new information was provided or a fresh perspective was given to a familiar concept. A portion of all entry fees will be contributed to ASJA’s Writers Emergency Assistance Fund (WEAF), and winners will receive cash prizes. ASJA will feature winning articles in press releases and social media posts.

“The aim of the awards is to bring greater visibility to this important time in our world history,” says Milton C. Toby, JD, president of ASJA. “I applaud Janine Latus and the ASJA Crisis Coverage Awards Committee for developing such a timely program to showcase the work of writers globally.” READ MORE
