Please help up celebrate journalism that matters — and the journalists that create it.

Nominate a journalist you think gets it. Someone who understands that the stories of people matter. That spending time in the neighborhoods is crucial to cover Chicago. Someone who is a watchdog, but remembers that any investigation is, at its heart, about people.

For more information about the award, its more than 70 recipients, its history and the man who was our mentor, please visit our awards page and to nominate a journalist,  please click here.
