About ARIJ Annual Awards

This year marks the 11th ARIJ Annual Awards which honor journalists who take on official criticism, reluctant sources, and risk of retaliation to bring citizens information about corruption and injustice in their societies. The awards acknowledge the integrity and professionalism of these journalists. They set benchmarks for future generations to model. The awards are nonpartisan, independent of all factions, organizations, political parties, corporations, labor unions, religions or causes beyond investigative reporting itself. In short, ARIJ honors unfettered truth-telling. Finalists in five categories will be presented honorary plaques and prizes at the Gala dinner Dec. 2, 2018, in front of the award-winning journalists, distinguished leaders in the field, and representatives of investigative organizations from around the world gathered at the ARIJ Annual Forum at the Convention center - Hilton Dead Sea, Jordan. The awards competition is open to ARIJeans --those who have produced investigations in cooperation with ARIJ -- and two categories are open to all Arab journalists unaffiliated with the organization. The deadline to enter is Oct. 30.  Submissions must be in Arabic and should cover current affairs in the Arab World. Entries will be judged on their content, creativity, and impact. Here are the categories:  
  • the best multimedia piece
  • the best television piece longer than 15 minutes
  • the best television piece between seven and 15 minutes
  • the best environmental and human rights television piece
  • the best data journalism piece in the Arab world (open to ARIJ and non-ARIJ journalists)
  • the best investigative piece in the Arab world (open to ARIJ and non-ARIJ journalists)
