On the occasion of the 97th anniversary of its birth, and to celebrate the World Sport Journalists Day,  the International Sports Press Association (AIPS) held a prestigious conference — with 700 registrants from more than 100 countries— that outlined the most difficult challenges faced by journalists after the pandemic: restrictions, mental health and limited access to sources.
This time we arrive at July 2, a day dedicated to international sports journalism, in a very particular psychological condition: some of us hoped to have come out of the COVID-19 nightmare by now, others still live in fear of the contagion. 
It’s time to restart. One month after the impressive virtual ceremony from the castle of Vigevano, Italy, the AIPS Sport Media Awards are back. The fourth edition of the most prestigious sports journalism award is now open!
