SPJ’s New America Award honors public service journalism that explores and exposes an issue of importance to immigrant or ethnic communities currently living in the United States. Although not required, collaboration with ethnic media is taken into account.

To be eligible, work must have been published or broadcast during the 2020 calendar year. SPJ welcomes entries from media outlets, journalists, community and issue advocacy groups, individuals and others concerned with ethnic issues.

Entries for the New America Award must be submitted online by February 23, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Each entry must include a cover letter explaining the significance of the issue and why it was chosen. The letter should explain any obstacles encountered and benefits gained. The letter can also provide background about the entrants and talk about the effects of the journalism produced. Entries may be in any language; however, English translations must be supplied for entries that are not in English. For broadcast entries, transcripts in English are required.
