The $5,000 Schorr Prize – sponsored by WBUR and Boston University, and funded by Jim and Nancy Bildner – recognizes a rising star in public radio and seeks to inspire a new generation of journalists to stretch the boundaries of the medium.

The work may be presented in the form of a produced news story, podcast, news feature, documentary, series on a single topic or an investigative report. Complete guidelines are online at wbur.fm/schorrprize.

The award is named after the late Daniel Schorr, who gave American journalism a lifetime of commitment through his insight, intelligence and integrity. Schorr believed strongly in supporting talented journalists as they rose through the ranks of public radio. The selected Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize winner will be honored at the annual WBUR Gala which takes place on May 15 at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge, Mass.
