The Martha Gellhorn prize for journalism

Entries are invited for the fourth annual journalism prize in honour of Martha Gellhorn. The subject matter can focus on the UK or abroad but must be a human story that cuts through the established version of events and brings to the fore an issue that has been buried by current news agendas. A maximum of three articles from 31 January 2002 to January 2003 can be submitted and entrants must include six copies of each piece. The winner receives £5,000. Previous journalists who have won the prize are Jeremy Harding, Geoffrey Lean and Nick Davies.
