2020 Nyhan Prize - Call for Nominations

2020 Nyhan Prize - Call for Nominations


The essence of journalism is holding power accountable. As a columnist and reporter at The Boston Globe, David Nyhan challenged the powerful and acted as a voice for those whose voices are seldom heard. The Nyhan Prize honors a journalist who embodies David’s style of journalism and his commitment to mobilize public support across society’s fault lines of class, race, gender and ethnicity for worthy causes.

Criteria: Open to U.S.-based political reporters and political columnists. Previous prize winners are not eligible. Please view the list of past winners and read samples of Nyhan’s work and articles about him for a sense of the type of writing honored by this award.

Please submit all nominations by Thursday, August 20th, 2020.
