Philip Meyer Journalism Awards
Co-Sponsored by Northwestern University Knight Lab
The presentation of the 2012 Philip Meyer Journalism Awards will take place on Friday at the 2013 CAR Conference in Louisville. The awards recognizes the best uses of social research methods in journalism and are named in honor of Philip Meyer, author of “Precision Journalism” and retired Knight Chair in Journalism and UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
Three awards are given annually — a first, second and third place — to recognize the best work using techniques that are part of precision journalism, computer-assisted reporting and social science research. The awards are: $500 for first, $300 for second, and $200 for third.
Join fellow CAR attendees for the presentation of the Philip Meyer Journalism Awards at a reception with light hor d' oeuvres and a cash bar beginning at 5:15 p.m. Friday in Regency North. Thanks to Northwestern University Knight Lab for sponsoring the first drink for all attendees that evening.
A Night on the Town
