Winning stuff is always a nice thing.

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger has been selected by the Harvard Kennedy School to receive the Goldsmith Career Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Rusbridger, who has been editor of the Guardian since 1995, is being recognized for his leadership in the paper’s five-year investigation and exposure of phone hacking by employees of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. He led the negotiations with Julian Assange and subsequent publication of WikiLeaks documents. Rusbridger has also been instrumental in the paper’s “digital-first” business strategy.

Rusbridger will accept his award and deliver a speech at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government on March 6.

Past recipients of the Goldsmith Career Award include Frank Rich, Seymour Hersh, Christiane Amanpour, Peter Jennings, Gwen Ifill, David Fanning and Daniel Schorr. The awards also include a major prize for investigative reporting and two book prizes.
