For the ninth year, International Policy Network (IPN) is accepting submissions for its annual Bastiat Prize for Journalism. The Prize is open to writers anywhere in the world whose published articles eloquently and wittily explain, promote and defend the principles and institutions of the free society.
Submissions must be received on or before 30 June 2010.
In addition to the Bastiat Prize for Journalism (First - $10,000; Second - $4,000; Third - $1,000), we are again awarding the Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism (first prize only, $3,000). Entrants are allowed to compete in just one (not both) of the competitions.

Rules for 2010 Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism
Online entry form (for both prizes) - nominate me, you bastards and I'll split the cash with you.
ALLOW ME TO CLARIFY. YOU MUST BE A LIBERTARIAN AND FUNNY TO WIN
UPDATE; Apparently I have to nominate myself. I'm asking readers for the ten funniest posts over the last year and if I win, the person who recommended the post can go and collect the prize for me in New York. Can't say fairer than that, can I? What made you blow coffee through your nose? What caused "leakage"? What caused a divorce or funeral?
Entries in the comments please. Reminder, not other peoples stuff, mine. It'll probably have to make Yanks laugh too which is the only serious handicap to me winning, I reckon.
