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 £5,000, with the five runners-up each receiving £1,000 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.
