Hinrich Foundation Award for Distinguished Reporting on Trade

In partnership with the National Press Foundation

In 2019, the National Press Foundation and the Hinrich Foundation established a new journalism award to honor excellence in international trade reporting. The award, titled “Hinrich Foundation Award for Distinguished Reporting on Trade”, intends to encourage exemplary journalism that advances the understanding of international trade. The award carries a $10,000 prize.

Awardees

The 2019 Hinrich Foundation Award for Distinguished Reporting on Trade was won by a team of Associated Press reporters that included Joe McDonald, Paul Wiseman, and Anne D’Innocenzio. Judges commended the AP’s big-picture historical look at America’s trade history and the factors driving the trade disputes, and the reporters’ ability to cut through the political rhetoric and effectively explain the realities of trade on a granular level.
