Center for Public Interest Journalism establishes Larry Weiss Award for Investigative Journalism

leave a comment »

Earlier this week, the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University announced the establishment of the Larry Weiss Award for Investigative Journalism.   From the release:

The Larry Weiss Award for Investigative Journalism, open to journalism of any medium (print, broadcast or online) produced in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, South Jersey or Delaware, will include one top prize of $10,000 and two “special recognition” prizes of $2,500.

“In a democracy, agreement is not essential; participation is. Good journalism raises issues and cries out for participation,” says Weiss, an entrepreneur focusing his efforts in the graphic arts. “I am hopeful that this award will recognize the important work of the investigative journalist.”

Deadline for entries is February 15, 2012. The awards will be presented at a televised luncheon at WHYY studios in Philadelphia on Thursday, April 19, 2012. Full press release is posted here, and entry guidelines here.
