Posted on Jun 17, 2020 in Specialized Topics

Journalists who have a strong commitment to press freedom and independent information can compete for an award.

Free Press Unlimited, a nonprofit organization based in the Netherlands, is accepting nominations for the Free Press Awards.

The awards aim to honor journalists who risk everything to bring the news to the public, media pioneers who pave the way for equality and justice and those who persevere under the most difficult circumstances.

The categories are newcomer of the year and most resilient journalist of the year.

Prizes include a media scholarship for the newcomer of the year and EUR15,000 (US$16,929) for the most resilient journalist. Both winners usually receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Netherlands.

The deadline is Aug. 1.
