IAPA seeks nominations of human rights journalists and press freedom advocates
IAPA is also seeking nominations for its US$2,000 Grand Prize for Press Freedom, awarded to an individual, publication or organisation committed to exposing the truth - despite intimidation and repression - in a manner that upholds media principles of accuracy and fairness.
Deadlines for entries are 15 January 2012. The award winners will receive cash prizes at IAPA's General Assembly in São Paul, Brazil, in October. To be eligible, the journalism of the nominees must have been conducted and published or aired in Latin American and Caribbean countries.
