The Free Press Unlimited is seeking nominations for the Most Resilient Journalist Award for journalist who has demonstrated extraordinary strength of character, courage and perseverance in reporting the news.
Nominees of the Most Resilient Journalist have often faced imprisonment, violence and censorship for doing their job. They have shown a strong commitment to press freedom and independent information, and are generally highly-regarded journalists who are willing to risk their life or their freedom in order to keep the public informed.
They produce their work in the face of government oppression, political pressure, intimidation, physical violence and other obstacles. The Most Resilient Journalist Award honours journalists who risk everything to bring us the news, media pioneers who pave the way for equality and justice and those who persevere under the most difficult circumstances. In recognition of his or her achievements, the winner of the Most Resilient Journalist Award will receive a cash prize.
Nominations for the awards will be judged by an independent panel of international experts. Please note the following when nominating:
- You can not nominate yourself
- When you nominate someone, make sure this person is aware and gives permission
- Make sure you have sufficient examples of work to upload with the nomination
