Campaigning Journalism Award Calls for Entries

A journalism award celebrating the best of UK-wide campaigning – plus the memory of investigative and campaigning journalist, Paul Foot – is calling for entries.

This is the sixth year of the Paul Foot Award, the competition run jointly by satirical magazine, Private Eye – the publication Foot was most associated with – and The Guardian newspaper.

The overall winner will be awarded £5000, with the five runners-up each receiving £1000 at a ceremony to be held in London in November.

The closing date for entries is September 1. 

Last year’s first prize was won by Ian Cobain, of The Guardian, for his investigation into Britain’s involvement in the torture of terror suspects overseas.
