Barlett & Steele Awards now accepting entries
Journalists are invited to enter their work in the 2017 Barlett & Steele Awards for Investigative Business Journalism.
The awards contest, administered by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, annually honors the best investigative business reporting in the country.
The contest is named for the renowned investigative reporting team of Don Barlett and Jim Steele, whose numerous awards include two Pulitzer Prizes. In January, they were named contributing editors of CNN’s new investigative reporting initiative.
Gold, silver and bronze winners receive cash awards of $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.
“Stunning investigative business stories such as ‘Panama Papers’ and ‘Fish from Slaves’ that received Barlett & Steele Awards in recent years reflect growing momentum in probing the world of money,” said Andrew Leckey, president of the Reynolds Center. “Driving this worthy pursuit into the future will be the next group of entries we receive from dedicated journalists and diverse news organizations.”
Entries for this year’s contest must have been published between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017.
Editors or contest coordinators of media outlets may submit up to two entries, each containing up to four articles. The entry deadline is July 31, 2017, 11:59 p.m. EST.
Entry rules and a link to the application are available here.
