Applications are now open for the #hostwriterPrize 2017. They accept entries for (1) story pitches and for (2) journalistic pieces that will be published by the end of July. The pitch prize is open to journalists with an excellent idea for a story that would be realised with at least one other colleague.


Story Prize

The hostwriter story prize awards exemplary works of journalistic collaboration. It’s open to teams of two or more journalists who have worked on a story together and have used hostwriter in some way during the research.


The winner of the Story Prize is also invited to join an event at the New York Times Athens Democracy Forum in September 2017.

Pitch Prize

The hostwriter pitch prize is awarded to a team of journalists with an excellent story idea yet to be realised with the help of hostwriter. Hostwriter strongly encourages journalism students and recent graduates to apply.
