The deadline to nominate an individual or an organization for the Payne Awards for Ethics in Journalism is February 24, 2006. The program is in its seventh year of honoring the highest ethical standards of print, broadcast, and new media journalism, and is adminstered by the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
The awards for ethical decisions made in 2005 will be awarded to individuals - including students and professionals - and organizations from among the nominations received before the February deadline. There is a $1,000 USD prize for individual and student awards, and nominations will be accepted from peers or from the individuals or the organizations involved.
