Sidney Hillman Foundation Invites Nominations for 2020 Hillman Prizes for Journalism


Since 1950, the Sidney Hillman Foundation has honored journalists, writers, and public figures  pursuing investigative journalism and public policy for the common good. Sidney Hillman was the founding president of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, a predecessor union of Workers United, SEIU. As an architect of the New Deal, Hillman fought to build a vibrant union movement extending beyond the shop floor to all aspects of working people’s lives.

In support of its mission, the foundation is inviting nominations for the 2020 Hillman Prizes for Journalism. Through the program, prizes of $5,000 will be awarded in support of investigative journalism and commentary that exemplifies reportorial excellence, storytelling skill, and social justice impact. There is no limit to the number of entries one outlet or publication may enter.

Prize categories include book (bound volumes and ebooks); newspaper journalism (story or series/in print or online); magazine journalism (story or series/in print or online); broadcast journalism (story/series/documentary at least twenty minutes in total package length that has aired on television, radio, or as a podcast); Web journalism (story/series that did not appear in print); and opinion & analysis journalism (any medium).

The contest is open to journalists and publishers globally, although work must have been intended for and be widely accessible to a U.S. audience. Self-nominations are allowed.

See the Sidney Hillman Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
