The Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism
The Kurt Schork Memorial Fund (KSMF) is now accepting submissions for its 12th annual awards in international journalism. Established in 2002, the awards were created in honour of American freelance journalist Kurt Schork who was killed on assignment for Reuters in Sierra Leone.
The prestigious awards recognize the work of reporters who seek to illuminate the human condition through courageous reporting of conflict, corruption, human rights transgressions and other key issues.
Judges look for high-calibre writing and evidence of special determination and courage in obtaining the story.
Winners will be announced in November 2013.
Venue: Thomson Reuters Foundation in London
The first recognises the often unsung work of local reporters in developing nations or countries in transition who write about events in their homeland.
The second is for freelance journalists who travel to the world’s hotspots, often at great personal risk and little protection, to witness and capture the impact and consequences of events.
The two winners receive their awards, including a US $5,000 cash prize each, at a ceremony, originally held in New York but since 2006 held in London each November.
Their work is celebrated in front of an invited audience drawn from international media and influential bodies concerned with promoting social justice, democracy and global dialogue. The evening features a panel discussion on an important issue current for the year.

German Development Media Awards
The German Development Media Awards recognize excellence in human rights and development journalism. The awards champion independent media across the world and put the spotlight on journalists telling important stories affecting their communities, countries and regions.
These awards are a new initiative by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Germany's international broadcaster, Deutsche Welle.
The BMZ has a proud tradition of honoring German journalists who focus on international development issues. Now, in partnership with Deutsche Welle, the new German Media Development Awards are also open to journalists from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
The German Development Media Awards aim to support the work of talented journalists around the world and to emphasize the role of human rights and development in strengthening democracy, good governance, civil society and freedom of the press.
Six human rights prizes worth 2,000 euros each will be presented as part of the awards - one each to a journalist from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Germany.
As of this year, there will also be a 2,000 euro People's Choice Award open to African press photographers covering human rights in Africa.
Asian Media Awards
From journalists working in local newspapers and internet bloggers to TV presenters and PR experts, the Asian Media Awards is dedicated to rewarding their talent, drive and potential. The event will showcase the very best talent working in the Asian and mainstream media.
The awards aim to reward the efforts of members of the Asian Media in helping to galvanise their communities and forging ahead with what sometimes are limited resources.
They also look to highlight the ground breaking work of reporters and producers in highlighting issues affecting race relations and human rights.
Partners for the awards include ITV and Press Association Training. Judges include representatives from Mediacom and the Independent
The Asian Media Awards will take place on Thursday 31 October at the Hilton Deansgate, Manchester. Before then a finalist’s launch will be held in London in September.
