    The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) invites entries for the Daniel Pearl Awards, named for the Wall Street Journal reporter killed in 2002 in Pakistan. The awards recognize excellence in cross-border investigations on issues of world importance.

    The competition is open to professional journalists of any nationality, working individually or in teams, in any medium. To be eligible, a piece of journalism must include on-the-ground reporting done in at least two countries, and must have been first published or broadcast between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009.

    Two first prizes of 5,000 American dollars (approximately 3,350 Euros) and five finalist awards of 1,000 American dollars (approximately 670 Euros) will be presented. Winners will be announced at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 2010.
