A prestigious journalism award now in its fifth year is open for entries.
The Paul Foot Award celebrates the best in campaigning and investigative journalism on a local, regional or national level.
Last year the Rossington Community Newsletter, based in South Yorkshire, was shortlisted alongside journalists from The Times and Private Eye magazine whose editor Ian Hislop heaped praise on the monthly title.
The awards were created in memory of left-wing campaigner and investigative journalist Paul Foot who died aged 66 in 2004.
Entries for this year’s award must have been published between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 in a newspaper, magazine or online. Broadcast material is not eligible.
Individuals or teams of journalists as well as entire publications may enter and submissions will be considered for anything from single pieces to entire campaigns.
The overall winner will be awarded £5,000, with the five runners-up each receiving £1,000.
The closing date for entries is 1 September and the awards ceremony takes place on 2 November in London.
