Deadline Approaching: 2011 Journalism Awards - $5,000.00 Cash Prize

Deadline Approaching: 2011 Journalism Awards - $5,000.00 Cash Prize

By SOP newswire2

The Institute on Political Journalism is accepting submissions for our two awards:
The Clark  Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting &
The Excellence in Economic Reporting Award
The Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting is named for the late Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter who conducted groundbreaking investigations into the influence of organized crime in American society. His work led to successful crackdowns on labor racketeering and Teamster Union corruption.
The Economic Journalism Award is presented to reporters from a magazine, newspaper, News Service,  Newsletter, Blog,  or Online news site whose series or columns provide the best understanding of business and economic principles and their impact on policies and markets. Original fact-finding and reporting earns special merit.
The presentation of the awards, including a cash prize of  $5,000.00 along with a bronze eagle trophy, will take place at a luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C in the summer of 2011.
Both awards are sponsored by The Institute on Political Journalism, an educational program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies.
