To recognize excellence in reporting on economic inequality and its effects on families in the U.S., the National Press Foundation will provide three $4,000 Economic Justice Journalism Awards for work done in any medium.
The three $4,000 prizes are given for work published within each of these categories:
1. Story published/aired by any news outlet
2. Story published/aired by any news outlet with a newsroom of 150 or fewer journalists
3. Story is published/aired by any news outlet with a newsroom of 50 or fewer journalists, or by a freelancer, unemployed or furloughed journalist
This award is offered in conjunction with briefings for journalists who took part in the Future of the American Child Reporting Fellowships in 2023 and 2024. Summaries and transcripts of those briefings, as well as videos, can be found in NPF’s Children & Families and Poverty and Inequality resource areas.
