Call for the Philip Meyer Journalism Award

Deadline: 17 November, 2019


The Philip Meyer Journalism Award honors stories that utilize a wide variety of research tools, from probabilities to survey research. The contest is presented by the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting, the Knight Chair at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and Investigative Reporters and Editors.


Works must have been published or broadcast between October 1, 2018, and September 30, 2019. Entries submitted in other languages must be accompanied by English translations. One person on the story’s team must be a current IRE member.


Three awards are given annually — a first, second and third place — to recognize the best work using techniques that are part of precision journalism, computer-assisted reporting and social science research. The awards are: $500 for first, $300 for second, and $200 for third.


The deadline is November 17, 2019.
