2022 ICFJ Knight International Journalism Awards
2021 ICFJ Knight Award winners were Natália Leal and Pavla Holcová. Leal heads the trailblazing Brazilian site, Agência Lupa, which debunked massive amounts of deadly pandemic misinformation from President Jair Bolsonaro and his allies. Holcová, founder of a groundbreaking investigative journalism site in the Czech Republic, completed a report she had begun with a colleague who was brutally murdered, helping to bring down the Slovak government in the process.
At a time when attacks on journalists are rampant, the ICFJ Knight Award brings global visibility to the winners, whose courageous reporting often puts them at risk. Holcová said it provides awardees “an invisible shield,” helping to protect them against those who want to silence investigative reporting. Leal said the award “makes us feel like we are not alone. They have this network, and we can help each other.”
The award reflects the mission of ICFJ’s Knight Fellowships, which create and spread news innovation to better engage communities and improve lives. The program is supported by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
- They are seeking nominees whose pioneering coverage or media innovations have made an impact on the lives of people in their countries or regions.
- Candidates can be reporters, editors, technologists, media managers or citizen journalists.
- Those who meet the award’s criteria may nominate themselves.
The winners will be honored Nov. 10 at ICFJ’s 2022 Tribute to Journalists.
