Knight Award for Public Service

The award is made possible by the Knight Foundation.

This award recognizes digital journalism that performs a public service for a defined and specific community through compelling coverage of a vital community issue or event. Entries will be judged on the techniques and resources deployed to engage the community in the reporting process. Judges also will evaluate the use of digital media storytelling to compile, analyze and/or present critical information. Special emphasis will be placed on journalism that builds trust within the identified community, or addresses critical issues in traditionally underserved communities in innovative ways. In other words, judges are looking for storytelling that makes an impact, motivating the audience to act and improve a community’s welfare and quality of life.

One award, $5,000 prize
