YOUNG ESSAYISTS FOCUSED ON THE ENVIRONMENT (prize, October 15) by Bear Guerra

Via High Country News:

“Honoring the spirit of our founder, Tom Bell, we want to hear from aspiring essayists, ages 18 to 25, who will help tell the ongoing story of the modern American West.

Bell founded HCN in 1970, a time when there was little coverage of environmental issues in the West. The magazine thus became a strong voice for conservation in the West. Bell advocated for better management of public lands, helped persuade the Wyoming Legislature to pass laws for conservation goals, including strip-mine reclamation, and pressured Game and Fish to be more scientific. We’re looking for essayists who can take that kind of passion and apply it to new ideas about the modern West, helping challenge old notions of what it means to live throughout the region.

Essays should be no longer than 800 words. Consider topics you're familiar with and tell us why they’re important to you: environmental or social justice, climate change, water, energy & industry, wildlife, public lands, sustainability, economics -- you decide.”

DEADLINE: October 15.

AUDIO DOCUMENTARY MAKERS (prize, July 8) by Bear Guerra

Via IDA:

“We currently accept both stand-alone and documentary series. A stand-alone audio documentary may be either a one-off program or a single or multi-part documentary episode from a series (i.e. The Problem We All Live With from This American Life) that stands on its own as a documentary on a single subject or theme. A series is comprised of multiple episodes, conceived and constructed with a beginning and an end, with all the episodes being listened in order to create a complete story and/or support a complete theme (i.e. NYT's Caliphate, Serial, LA Times' Dirty John, APM’s In the Dark). Radio shows and podcasts that consist primarily of news reporting, interviews and conversational episodes are not eligible.”

DEADLINE: July 8.
