Bevins Prize now open for entries

Investigative journalism award the Bevins Prize is now open for entries.

According to its organisers, the award, which is named after political journalist Anthony Bevins, “aims to encourage and promote that relentless pursuit of truth”.

Bevins was born in Liverpool in 1942 and went on to work as a political correspondent and political editor for the Times, the Sun, the Daily Mail, the Observer, the Express and the Independent. He died in 2001.

Last year’s winner was awarded to Paul Lewis for his stories on the death of Ian Tomlinson at the hands of the police in the G20 riots in 2009.

The Prize is a bronze statue of a rat up a drainpipe.
