Announcing the 2017 Goldziher Prize
For Immediate Release | September 27, 2016 | www.goldziher.org
Please contact: Tamar Miller email@example.com
The Goldziher (Gold-zi-air) Prize is an award for excellence in the coverage of American Muslims by an individual or team of U.S. journalists.
The Goldziher Prize was created in response to the rising fear and hateful actions toward American Muslims. The Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations at Merrimack College, an independent college in the Catholic Augustinian tradition, and the William and Mary Greve Foundation seek to publicly recognize and stimulate stories or opinion pieces about Muslims in the U.S.
This competition is named for Ignác Goldziher (1850-1921), a Hungarian Jew who was one of the first university scholars in Europe to study and admire the laws, poetry, and practices of Islam.

- Entries can include works in print, video or audio, and photographic essays, which were created after December 15, 2014.
