The Elijah Parish Lovejoy Award is presented annually by Colby College to a member of the newspaper profession who has contributed to the country's journalistic achievement. The award is named for Elijah Parish Lovejoy, and established in 1952.[1][2]

Award criteria[edit]

The award was established to:

  1. Stimulate and honor the kind of achievement in the field of reporting, editing, and interpretive writing that continues the Lovejoy heritage of fearlessness and freedom.
  2. Promote a sense of mutual responsibility and cooperative effort between a newspaper world devoted to journalistic freedom and a liberal arts college dedicated to academic freedom.[3]

The recipient is chosen, based on a selection committee's judgement of a journalist's integrity, craftsmanship, character, intelligence, and courage.[3][4]
