Trace Calls for Nominations for Investigative Stories on Bribery

Alexandra Wrage,
President and Founder

TRACE, an international non-profit business association dedicated to promoting anti-bribery, compliance and good governance, is currently accepting nominations for investigative reporting that focuses on exposing business-related bribery and financial crimes to increase commercial transparency and promote good governance.

Nominations are open to print, broadcast, or online reporters from any country who have investigated commercial bribery schemes, business activities that create serious conflicts of interest, or similar commercial misconduct. Team entries and multiple submissions per author are allowed, but book-length entries will not be accepted.

Works must have appeared in 2023 and may cover actual violations of law as well as activities that create significant conflicts of interest and related misconduct. Entries not originally written/produced in English must be accompanied by a translation.

Up to two winners will be selected to receive US$10,000 each; in addition, they will be invited to an awards ceremony organized by TRACE International.

Two honorable mentions will each receive US$1,000.

Applications close on January 31, 2024.
