LAUSANNE, October 26, 2020 - Amazing stories, stunning pictures, profound documentaries and in-depth audio files are coming day after day from every corner of the world, as the race for the AIPS Sport Media Awards enters its last decisive two weeks.

There are still 15 days to submit your work and participate in the third edition of the first international prize for sport journalism, a unique opportunity to earn recognition for achievements in writing, photography, audio and video.

This is a cornerstone initiative of AIPS, the International Sport Press Association, as we continue to celebrate those professionals that produce the best and most creative content worldwide.

The AIPS Sport Media Awards give visibility to our profession and prestige to our colleagues, no matter if they are employees or freelancers, if they work for a big media group or for a small newspaper. In times of crisis, as we all are experiencing with Covid-19 pandemic, it is an essential measure to keep celebrating sport media excellence and the men and women that make it possible.

The Awards are currently on the third edition, after a compelling ceremony broadcast on live television in Lausanne 2019 and Budapest 2020, with IOC president Thomas Bach and FIFA President Gianni Infantino. Since its creation in 2018, the AIPS Sport Media Awards have gathered more than 3,500 submissions from 137 countries. No other award can claim such a global and rapid response.

Sport is a valuable tool for education and culture and AIPS defends the importance of quality reporting, bringing quality stories. From football to cricket, from athletics to surf, from gymnastics to wresting, cycling or boxing, every sport is represented and has equal chances of winning.

To submit your work visit our website, www.aipsawards.com.

Submission is free and can be made in any language. Each individual can submit up to two works, if they were published/broadcast between October 8, 2019 and November 9, 2020.

Prizes are US$ 8,000 per winner, US$ 3,000 and 2,000 for second and third placed. Due to the extraordinary global situation the AIPS Sport Media Awards 2020 ceremony will be announced at a later date.

Submission deadline is November 9, 18:00 CET.
