Nominate a journalist

Nominations are now open for this year’s awards! The Studs Terkel Community Media Awards:

  • Recognize a body of work, rather than a single article or series.
  • Are open to any journalist on any platform at any stage in their career (this can go beyond bylines and include editors, producers or other ‘behind-the-scenes’ journalists).
  • Must demonstrate quality journalism, authentic storytelling and be exemplary when it comes to Studs’ gift of elevating people’s voices above power. Think about an investigative reporter, who deals in data. But make sure the work brings the data to life via stories of people. Or a great radio journalist who tells stories about people you would never have otherwise met.
