For more than 50 years, the Sidney Hillman Foundation has recognized journalists who have pursued social justice and public policy for the common good. Hillman, who died in 1946, was a founder of a labor union, an advisor to FDR and a Democratic Party activist. The Hillman Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2006 Hillman Journalism Awards. Award categories include books (non-fiction), newspaper reporting, magazine reporting (including online magazines), film and broadcast journalism, and photojournalism. The 2006 awards will be given for work produced, published or exhibited in 2005. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 15. Winners receive a $2,000 prize and a plaque.
