Now in its fourteenth year, Asia Society’s “Oz Prize” is the premier honor bestowed for excellence in journalism on Asia. It honors the late Osborn Elliott, the legendary journalist and longtime Newsweek editor, who set new standards for reporting and editing and became one of the earliest practitioners of "civic journalism."
