Het Zwitserse tijdschrift Reportagen initieert de journalistieke prijs True Story Award, die in de lente van 2021 voor de tweede keer zal worden uitgereikt. Het belangrijkste doel van de prijs sluit feilloos aan op de missie van 360: het verbreden van ons westerse perspectief op de wereld. Journalisten wereldwijd worden aangespoord artikelen in te sturen die getuigen van moed en innovatie. 360-hoofdredacteur Katrien Gottlieb is een van de juryleden. Hieronder de oproep van de organisatie.

Dear Reporters, Publishers and Editors

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, which launches today, 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. The «True Story Award» was created for them. Fifty jurors from 29 countries will review all submissions and nominate a total of 42 reporters for their work.

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

The True Story Award 2019 went to the Russian reporter Shura Burtin. Second and third prizes went to Mark Arax (USA) and Du Qiang (China). All winning articles and nominees can be found here.

The True Story Award is organized and carried out by the True Story Foundation, in close cooperation with the «Reportagen Festival Bern».

Yours sincerely
