APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR THE TRUE STORY AWARD 2020/2021

Applications are now open for the 2020/2021 True Story Award. The True Story Award, the first global prize for print and online reporting, is accepting entries for its second edition. Articles, in 12 languages and published in 2019, can be submitted no later than 24 January 2020.

The True Story Award 2020/21 provides recognition for exceptional written reports in all countries, in 12 of the world’s most widely used languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, Russian, Persian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese). It commends articles for excellence in research, reporting, and relevance to society.

The prize should encourage and support the work of journalists the world over. In many places, the loss of pluralistic and independent reporting impairs freedom of speech. This is why courageous journalists and their investigative reporting combined with compelling storytelling is so important in all societies and countries.

These journalists will be invited to the award ceremony, which will take place as part of the second Reportagen Festival Bern in spring 2021.
