Deadline approaches for The Walrus-CIC long-form contest

The long-form, general interest magazine The Walrus magazine (winner of 93 National Magazine Awards since 2003) has teamed up with the Canadian International Council to support a competition for the best pitch of an internationally focused, long-form journalism story.

The winner will develop the pitch with a Walrus editor into an investigative article of 5000-7500 words, to be published by the magazine next year. And the cash prize is $7500.

The competition is open to graduate students, journalists, academics, former public policy figures, or members of NGO and business communities. It has two objectives:

  • to promote an investigative, reported, or analytic article of the highest quality by a Canadian or resident of Canada who is involved in international research;
  • to raise the profile of a salient issue in international political affairs within Canada and worldwide.

Submissions deadline is October 26, 2012.

Guidelines and more information at the CIC website.
