The submitted stories must have first been published or broadcast in a Nigerian media between 4th October 2014 and 3rd October 2015.

In addition to the entry coding system which makes the details of media house and by-line of entrants anonymous to judges introduced in 2012, the WSCIJ now converts entries to electronic format before sending to judges.

The electronic entries system is helping to ease scoring for judges and enable the inclusion of persons from across Nigeria and abroad to participate in the judging process.

Entries will be scored by a panel of judges drawn from the media and related professions who are passionate about investigative reporting.
