Call for nominations for the 2017 Free Media Awards
The Fritt Ord Foundation and the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius hereby invite nominations of journalists, bloggers, internet media and newspapers for the 2017 Free Media Awards.
The Free Media Awards are awarded to journalists and media outlets from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.
The prizes provide support for journalists and media outlets that report independently and refuse to give up in the face of threats. The media operate under tremendous pressure in many countries in Eastern Europe. With the Free Media Awards, we seek to encourage journalists and media outlets to carry on their work, despite threats and violent oppression, and to contribute to strengthen independent journalism.
