Aronson Awards for social justice journalism Call For Entries, deadline Feb 15



Dear Colleagues,

We are soliciting submissions for this year's James Aronson Awards for Social Justice Journalism.

The deadline for entries is February 15, 2016 

Since 1990, the Aronson Awards have honored original, written reporting that exposes widespread injustices, underlying causes, and possible reforms. This includes exposing discrimination based on race, class, gender, religion or sexual orientation; economic exploitation; violations of human rights, civil liberties or free expression; environmental degradation; and brutality to civilians in war.

The award recognizes original work published in English in newspapers, magazines, blogs and online publications based in the U.S.

A separate prize, the Grambs Aronson Award for Cartooning with a Conscience, recognizes the achievements of political cartoonists whose work focuses on social issues.

Individual reporters, cartoonists and publications are encouraged to submit your work. 

For more information, submission guidelines and a list of past winners, please go to

The Aronson Awards are administered by the Hunter College Department of Film & Media Studies and a judging committee of journalists and media critics.
