Huffington Post: National Enquirer entry accepted for Pulitzer prize

Now confirmed in a story on the National Enquirer’s website (which is playing up, but a cached version is at this link) – the Enquirer has been accepted into the Pulitzer prize competition for its coverage of the John Edwards scandal and for breaking the story of the former Democratic presidential nominee’s affair with a campaign worker, his cover-up of expenses and an investigation into possible “misappropriation” of campaign funds.

“The Pulitzer Board’s decision to give The Enquirer its rightful place in the competition for the award shows the old guard journalists recognize and respect the importance of the investigation by the paper’s reporters, photographers and editors,” writes Emily Miller.

YouTube’s videojournalism competition opens for entries

Project:Report, the videojournalism contest for aspiring journalists run by the Pulitzer Center and YouTube, has opened its doors for the second year running.

The competition involves three rounds of video assignments. The first to be submitted before 28 February should “document a single day in the life of a compelling person the world should meet and showcase how that person is making a positive impact in his or her community”.

Ten entrants will be chosen to go through to the second round. Five winners will eventually be selected and each will receive a $10,000 travel fellowship with the Pulitzer Center.

MUST-READS: “EARTHQUAKES AND JOURNALISM”

contributor_stevecollphoto_p233_crop

Steve Coll, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, explains in his blog Think Tank why we need brave journalists covering disasters like the earthquake in Haiti.

The lead:

“Journalism is not a particularly esteemed profession, but its capacity to bear witness remains one of its more redeeming attributes. At moments like this in Haiti, a journalist’s function as a witness can be relatively uncomplicated, in comparison to, say, the processes of political or investigative reporting. In the field during a natural disaster of this scale, you do feel at times ghoulish and intrusive upon both the grief of survivors and in relation to the more directly useful efforts of rescuers and humanitarian relief workers. And yet all of those classes of participants in the crisis will recognize, most of the time, that journalism helpfully amplifies their own condition or potential.

The end:

“Technology, increasingly, makes us all witnesses to crises. And yet, only those journalists intrepid enough to find their way forward, independently, can focus our lenses.

The New Yorker’s piece is a must-read.
