Every year, the American Academy of Religion honors the best in-depth reporting on religion. Beginning in 2022, awards will be given in the following two contests:
Best In-Depth Newswriting
Best In-Depth Multimedia Journalism
Each award is evaluated by a jury of two current or former journalists, plus a representative from the AAR’s Committee on the Public Understanding of Religion, which oversees the contest.
For contest questions, contact Marion Pierre at [email protected].
First place: $500
Second place: $150
Third place: $100
Second and third place awarded at discretion of judges.
