Calls Deadline 03/2023 Prize / Award

Journalism Award for Ibero-America

Deadline: March 22, 2023

The Gabo Foundation announces the 11th edition of the Gabo Award to promote models of excellence, ethical coherence, and innovation in Ibero-American journalism so that citizens may be more active and better informed—an essential part of building solid and sustainable democracies.

The entries are evaluated by autonomous judging panels—made up of distinguished journalists from several different countries—who are responsible for the pre-selection, evaluation, and final selection of the best pieces in order to define the respective lists of nominees, finalists, and winners in the competition’s five categories.

In the contest, the award will be granted after the judging panel has made its final decision. The journalism pieces must have been originally published in Spanish or Portuguese between June 7, 2022 and March 21, 2023.

Entries must be submitted on the Gabo Award platform between Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, March 22, 2023.

The works submitted will compete in one of five categories, as follows:

Text: for the author(s) of the best-written piece of journalism

Photography: for the author(s) of the best photographic coverage

Audio: for the author(s) of the best piece of audio journalism

Image: for the author(s) of the best piece of journalism in the category of audiovisual, video, animation, or other digital visualization formats
