PCIM: Nominations for the Izzy Award for calendar year 2014 are now open!

From Jeff Cohen, Director, Park Center for Independent Media:

Nominations for the Izzy Award for calendar year 2014 are now open. The annual honor for outstanding achievement in independent media — named after legendary journalist I. F. “Izzy” Stone — is a project of the Park Center for Independent Media (PCIM) at Ithaca College.

This year’s Izzy Award will be given for work published, broadcast or posted in 2014 by an independent media outlet, journalist or producer. The award may relate to a single piece or a body of work. Journalists, academics and the public at large may submit nominations by the January 16, 2015, deadline. The judges may also nominate. Nominations should be submitted via a brief e-mail (250 words or less) that includes supporting web links (no more than six) and/or attached materials to Brandy Hawley at bhawley@ithaca.edu.

Joining PCIM Director Jeff Cohen on the judges panel for the seventh year in a row are communications professor and author Robert W. McChesney and Linda Jue, executive director and editor at the G. W. Williams Center for Independent Journalism.
