The Egon Erwin Kisch Prize (German: Egon-Erwin-Kisch-Preis) is a literary prize awarded in Germany. It is named after the author and journalist Egon Erwin Kisch. The prize was started in 1977 by Henri Nannen, founder of the magazine Stern and is intended to promote journalistic quality in the German press, especially in the print media. Selection of awardees is done in the spirit of the precept formulated by Egon Erwin Kisch: "Write that down, Kish". Starting in 2005, the prize was incorporated in the documentary category of the newly created Henri Nannen Prize.
