Last 10 days to submit your work for 2022 edition

  • October 24, 2022

The submission period for the AIPS Sport Media Awards is closing soon. Until Friday 4 November, at 6 pm Central European Time, the website will be receiving submissions form all over the world.

So far, more than 100 countries are represented in the 8 senior categories, each of them offering a maximum prize of 8,000 US Dollars, while the optional Under 30 category reserved for Young Reporters born since 1993 offers a scholarship at a top international event during 2023.

The AIPS Awards are the global prize for sports journalism, accepting works from all media professionals working in traditional and new media, regardless of their working status and with no restrictions when it comes to languages. These stories must have been first published or broadcast since 5 November 2021, until deadline of next week, Friday 4 November 2022.

GLOBAL INTEREST In the 2021 edition, entries from 133 countries were submitted in 35 different languages. Since the start, 157 countries were represented by 4000 registered journalists.

The Awards, with the five voting stages before reaching the desired podium, also highlight the importance of the works on a local, regional and world scale.

CONTINENTAL RECOGNITION Continental rankings per category are also published in order to offer more opportunities and to celebrate those journalists whose works were among the most voted after the careful review of 40 pundits, Executive Committee members and jurors, in total representing 36 different nations.

Special commendations are also released yearly. In the 2020 edition, they were for the extraordinary reporting during the irruption of the pandemic. In the 2021 edition, they were aligned to AIPS cornerstone values, including fighting against racism and discrimination, defending Human Rights and gender equality, access to sources and showcasing creativity and new ways of reporting.

We invite you to check the Rules, the Categories overview, the Frequently Asked Questions, and the quick guide on How to submit (which is very, very easy). We are also answering live messages on our social media accounts, both of AIPS Media and AIPS Awards.

Now it’s time to submit your work and feel part of the biggest sports journalism festival across the world. Go to and join the celebration!
