Call for applications: Covering Climate Now Journalism Awards

DEADLINE: JUNE 1, 2021 —The first annual Covering Climate Now Journalism Awards is now open for applications from around the world.

Entries must have been published or broadcasted in 2020.

Winning entries will feature great storytelling that – among other strengths – is rooted in science, humanizes climate change, empowers audiences, and holds power to account.

The jurors anticipate work that communicates the many dimensions of the challenge; that highlights and scrutinizes solutions; that calls out disinformation and self-dealing; and that recognizes the disproportionate impacts that climate change has on communities of color and the poor.

Entries (in English) will be accepted from news organizations or individual journalists from every corner of the newsroom who are producing coverage in print, digital, audio, video, and multimedia formats that report on all dimensions of the climate emergency, especially its solutions.

The deadline for applications is June 1, 2021.
