Street Sense Takes Entries For Reporting on Topic of Homelessness

Street Sense, the D.C.-based newspaper focusing on the homeless, is now taking submissions for its David Pike Awards. The awards, now four years old, are meant to honor reporting “that changes perceptions about homelessness, highlights issues that contribute to or result from homelessness, and shines light on possible solutions,” according to a release.

The Pike Awards, named in memory of Street Sense Board Member David Pike, have four categories: breaking news, investigative/feature stories, opinion pieces and photography. Anyone can submit a piece for consideration as long as the entry covers the D.C. metro region or national policy as it relates to homelessness and was published between Jan. 1, 2012 and Mar. 31, 2013.

The deadline for submissions is April 25. They can be sent to davidpikeawards@gmail.com.
