ENTRIES FOR THE MARTHA GELLHORN AWARD ARE NOW WELCOME
London, 8 December 2013
We are now calling for submissions for the 16th annual Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism.
Renowned as a war reporter and humanitarian, Martha Gellhorn was one of the first reporters in Vietnam to reveal what she called "a new kind of war against civilians": a precursor to the wars of today.
The Martha Gellhorn Prize is given in honour of one of the 20th century's greatest reporters and is awarded to a journalist whose work has penetrated the established version of events and told an unpalatable truth that exposes establishment propaganda or "official drivel", as Martha Gellhorn called it.
Last year's short-list included Andy Worthington, Iona Craig, Carl Prine, Tim Coles, Sam McNeil and Murphy Woodhouse and Alexa O'Brien.
