The AIPS Awards are the global prize for sports journalism, accepting works from all media professionals working in traditional and new media, regardless of their working status and with no restrictions when it comes to languages.

GLOBAL INTEREST In the 2020 edition, entries were submitted in 35 different languages. Since the start, more than 150 countries were represented.
The Awards, with the five voting stages before reaching the desired podium, also highlight the importance of the works on a local, regional and world scale.
CONTINENTAL RECOGNITION Continental rankings per category are also published in order to offer more opportunities and to celebrate those journalists whose works were among the most voted after the careful review of 40 pundits, Executive Committee members and jurors, in total representing 36 different nations.
Special diplomas of achievement are also released yearly. In the last edition, they were for the extraordinary reporting during the irruption of the pandemic.
