THE PRIVATE EYE PAUL FOOT AWARD 2020

The Private Eye Paul Foot Award was set up in memory of revered journalist Paul Foot who died in 2004. It honours the UK’s most brilliant, talented and determined journalists working in the fields of investigative and campaigning journalism today.

Submissions for this years award are now closed.

The winning entry will be awarded £5,000 at an awards ceremony at BAFTA, London on Wednesday 3rd June 2020.

The shortlist will be published on the Private Eye website and in the magazine in May 2020.

Ian Hislop, Editor of Private Eye, said: “Everything is cancelled - but not the Foot Awards! The ultimate journalism prize is still up for grabs - or maybe not grabs but possibly for a handshake - or maybe not a handshake but just a little wave ...but the glory and the large cheque await! Enter now whilst you have a bit of time on your hands (and then wash them).”

The judging panel is comprised of Padraig Reidy (Chair), Francis Wheen, Simon Jenkins, Helen Lewis, Emily Dugan, Janine Gibson, Julia Langdon and Matt Foot. The judges’ decision is final!
