The Felix Morley Journalism Award is organised by the libertarian think tank the Institute for Humane Studies to recognise the work of "outstanding young writers whose work best demonstrates and communicates an appreciation of classical liberal principles". [1]

"Classical liberal principles include inalienable individual rights; their protection through the institutions of private property, contract, and the rule of law; voluntarism in all human relations; and the self-ordering market, free trade, free migration, and peace," the IHS website states.

The prize is named after Felix Morley "who was editor of the Washington Post from 1933-1940 and won a Pulitzer Prize for distinguished editorial writing."

First prize is U.S.$2500.
