Who Should Receive an Investigative Prize?

Every second year the “Global Shining Light Award” is given to a work of investigative journalism in a developing or transitioning country, done under threat, duress, or in the direst of conditions.

The winner receives an honorary plaque, US$1,000, and a trip to the Global Investigative Journalism Conference to accept the award in front of hundreds of their colleagues from around the world.

Deadline for the next award is May 1, 2015, for stories published or broadcast between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014.
