About Nieman Reports
Founded in 1947, Nieman Reports is a website and quarterly print publication covering thought leadership in journalism. Its editorial mission mirrors that of the Foundation itself: “to promote and elevate the standards of journalism.” Nieman Reports is home to the Nieman Watchdog Project, which chronicles how journalists can hold those in power to account, founded by longtime Washington Post reporter and 1950 Nieman Fellow Murrey Marder.
In 2016, Nieman Reports received a 2016 Mirror Award for best single article, digital media and an ASJA Writing Award in the business/technology category (both for “Automation in the Newsroom” by Celeste LeCompte, NF ’15). Nieman Reports also received an SFJ Excellence-in-Features Award for general feature (“The Offending Art: Political Cartooning after the Charlie Hebdo Attacks” by Jonathan Guyer) and a SPJ Sigma Delta Chi Award for research in journalism (“How to Make J-School Matter (Again)” by Amy Webb, a 2014-2015 Visiting Nieman Fellow).
In 2015, Nieman Reports received two 2015 Mirror Awards, the first for best commentary (“Moral Hazard” by Yang Xiao, NF’ 14) and the second for best single article, digital media (“Where Are the Women? Why we need more female newsroom leaders” by Anna Griffin, NF’ 12); the 2014 Bart Richards Award for Media Criticism; and a 2015 EPPY Award for the best web redesign/relaunch (under 1 million unique monthly visitors category).
