Martha Gellhorn Prize open to Indian journos


The Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, considered to be one of the most prestigious in the world of journalism, is open to candidates from English-speaking countries outside the UK and USA from this year.

In other words, Indian journalists can apply.

The winner of the prize, awarded annually by the Martha Gellhorn Trust to “a journalist whose work has penetrated the established version of events and told an unpalatable truth, validated by powerful facts, that exposes establishment propaganda, or ‘official drivel’,” receives £5,000.

A minimum of two long articles (1,500 words or more) and a maximum of three articles of any length may be submitted, provided that they appeared in print or a reputable internet publication between 30 January 2009 and 30 January 2010. Entrants must include six copies of each piece submitted.
