George Polk Awards
Award for journalists
Not to be confused with the George Polk Award that was presented (1948-1973) by the Overseas Press Club of America.
The George Polk Awards in Journalism are a series of American journalism awards presented annually by Long Island University in New York in the United States. A writer for Idea Lab, a group blog hosted on the website of PBS, described the award as "one of only a couple of journalism prizes that means anything".
