Nominations wanted for Hrant Dink Award
Each year, two awards are granted: one to an entry from Turkey, and the other to an entry from abroad.
Journalist Hrant Dink launched the first Turkish-Armenian weekly, "Agos", in 1996. For writing critically about Turkish-Armenian relations, Dink was one of dozens of writers to be charged under controversial laws against insulting "Turkishness". On 19 January 2007, he was shot dead in front of his newspaper office.
The International Hrant Dink Award winners will be announced on Dink's birthday, 15 September.
