The Professor Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) has called for entries from interested journalists to apply for the 13th edition of the Centre’s award which is currently open for entries.

The award is open for applications from Nigerian professional journalists or team of journalists, full-time or part-time, with stories published between October 4, 2017 and October 3, 2018.

According to a statement signed by the Centre Coordinator, Motunrayo Alaka, and made available to journalists, the annual award seeks to honour journalism works from the print, radio, television, photography, online and editorial cartoon categories.

It said submitted reports must involve in-depth coverage of clandestine activities on public and or corporate corruption, human rights abuses or on regulatory failures in Nigeria, stressing that received entries will be collated using the award coding system and assessed by a panel of media experts and related professionals with good understanding of investigative reporting.

The statement read: “The judges’ board would broadly score stories based on quality of investigation, evidence, human rights elements, ethical reportage, courage, individual creativity, public interest, impact and quality of presentation.

“The deadline for the submission of entries is October 24, 2018, by 4p.m. All entries, apart from the online categories, must be submitted to the Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) office at the Second Floor, 18A, Abiodun Sobajo Street, Off Lateef Jakande road, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos State.
