Deadline: Last day of each month

Since 1950, the Sidney Hillman Foundation has awarded the annual Hillman Prizes, which are among the most prestigious honors in journalism. In 2009, the foundation inaugurated the Sidney, a monthly award for an outstanding piece of investigative work that fosters social and economic justice. The piece must have been published in the month preceding the deadline. The foundation will announce a winner on the 15th of each month. Recipients are awarded $500, a bottle of union-made wine, and a certificate designed especially for the Sidney by New Yorker cartoonist, Edward Sorel.
