Asia Society is currently seeking applications for the Osborn Elliott Prize for Excellence in Journalism on Asia. The $10,000 prize is awarded annually to a reporter or team of reporters who has produced the best example of journalism about Asia during the calendar year. Applications must be received by March 16, 2017.
The next winner of the “Oz Prize” will be announced at a special program at the Asia Society in New York City in May 2017.
Now in its fourteenth year, the “Oz Prize” is the premier award for reporting on Asia. The Prize honors the late Osborn Elliott, a legendary journalist and longtime Newsweek editor.
Elliott set new standards for reporting and editing and became one of the earliest practitioners of “civic journalism” — the deliberate focusing of the journalistic enterprise on urgent issues of public policy.
