Nominations are now open for the Izzy Award — the annual honor for outstanding achievement in independent media named after legendary journalist I.F. “Izzy” Stone and presented by the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College.
This year’s Izzy Award will be given for work published, broadcast or posted in 2018 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 31, 2019, deadline. The winner will be announced early next spring, with an award ceremony to follow in April 2019.
Nominations should be submitted via a brief email (250 words or less) that includes supporting web links (no more than six) and/or attached materials to Brandy Hawley at email@example.com.

Past winners include Amy Goodman, Jeremy Scahill, Naomi Klein, John Carlos Frey, Glenn Greenwald, and independent news sources such as “City Limits” and “Mother Jones.”
Izzy Award winners are chosen by a panel of independent judges with expertise in independent media.
Launched in 2008 and located within Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications, the Park Center for Independent Media is a national center focusing on media outlets that create and distribute content outside traditional corporate systems and news organizations.
