Ryszard Kapuściński Award for literary reportage

The Ryszard Kapuściński Award for Literary Reportage (Polish: Nagroda im. Ryszarda Kapuścińskiego za Reportaż Literacki) is one of the major Polish international literary prizes, the most important distinction in the genre of literary reportage. The Award was founded to celebrate and promote most worthwhile reportage books which touch on important contemporary issues, evoke reflection, and deepen knowledge of the world of other cultures, and thus also about oneself. Intended to honour the legacy of the journalist and writer Ryszard Kapuściński (1932–2007), the Award cherishes the honorary patronage of Mrs Alicja Kapuścińska, the wife of the writer.

Established in January 2010 by the Council of the Capital City of Warsaw, the award takes form of a monetary prize: 100,000 złoty for the author of the best literary reportage of the year and 20,000 PLN to the author of the best translation of the reportage of the year.[1]
