Deadline: 21 February 2017
The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute of New York University’s Faculty of Arts and Science (“the Institute”) is pleased to announce The Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award to provide the means for promising early-career, creative nonfiction writers to report on an untold story that uncovers truths about the human condition (“the Work”).
The 2017 Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award winner (“the Winner”) may be awarded up to twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500). The Winner will receive a six thousand dollar ($6,000) prize on acceptance of the proposal. The Winner also is eligible to receive an additional three thousand dollars ($3,000) upon evidence of substantial progress, and an additional three thousand five hundred dollars ($3,500) on completion and acceptance of the Work by the November 6, 2017 deadline, provided the Award Selection Committee (“the Committee”) judges the Work acceptable. Expenses incurred by the Winner in reporting and writing the Work are the sole responsibility of the Winner.
The Institute expects the Winner’s Work to meet a high degree of excellence. While The Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award competition is open to all, with the exceptions noted below, the Institute especially encourages applications from early-career, creative nonfiction writers working on projects that meet the competition’s guidelines.
The following persons are not eligible to compete for The Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award:
- Employees, volunteers, interns and agents of NYU, and each of their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries (“NYU Affiliates”)
- NYU graduates with degrees dated within two years of the application deadline
- Journalists holding staff positions at established media outlets that are in a position to fund such projects on their own.
