The Asia Society is currently seeking applications for the 2022 Osborn Elliott Prize for Excellence in Journalism on Asia.
The Osborn Elliott Prize for Excellence in Journalism on Asia, also referred to as the “Oz Prize,” honors the late Osborn Elliott, a legendary journalist and former editor-in-chief of Newsweek. Elliott set new standards for reporting and editing, and became one of the earliest practitioners of “civic journalism,” the deliberate focusing of the journalistic enterprise on urgent issues of public policy.
The winner of the Oz Prize will be announced in May, and honored at a special Asia Society New York program. Evaluation criteria include impact of the work, its originality, creativity, depth of research and educational value in informing the public about Asia. The $10,000 prize is awarded annually to a reporter or team of reporters who has produced the best example of journalism about Asia specifically during the 2021 calendar year.
