Hostwriter Prize Award

Hostwriter Prize Award is now accepting entries from journalists from around the world for its annual collaborative journalism pieces as well as promising story pitches.

Hostwriter, a platform that lets vetted journalists contact each other for collaboration opportunities, will award cash prizes for works of collaborative journalism.

There are two prize categories: the story prize for collaborative pieces researched and published by July 31 and the pitch prize for journalists with an idea for a story that would be realized with at least one other colleague.

The contest is open to teams of two or more journalists who have worked or will work on a story together and have used or will use Hostwriter in some way during the research.

Works may be in any language, but the application must be in English, German, Spanish, French or Portuguese.

The first and second prizes consist of cash awards of EUR2,000 (US$2,285) and EUR1,000 (US$1,142), respectively. Two winners of the pitch prize will each receive EUR1,000 (US$1,142).

The deadline for submission of application is July 31, 2017.
