The James V. Risser Prize for Western Environmental Journalism.

The prize will be given in the name of the director emeritus of the John S. Knight Fellowships for Professional Journalists at Stanford University. James V. Risser is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who wrote incisively about environmental issues and who has a particular interest in those issues as they affect the West.

The North American West shares some environmental problems with the rest of the continent, but many of its water, resource, land use and wildlife issues occur only in this region. The James V. Risser Prize for Western Environmental Journalism, inaugurated this year, will recognize excellence in reporting on these problems by print, broadcast and online journalists.

The award is for work published or broadcast during 2004. The winner will receive a $3,000 prize and participate in a public symposium at Stanford with journalists, academics and others whose work focuses on Western environmental issues.

Deadline for entries: March 15, 2005

The Risser Prize is sponsored by the John S. Knight Fellowships for Professional Journalists and the Center for the Study of the North American West, both at Stanford University.
