The NGO is requesting for journalists who have a strong commitment to press freedom and independent information to compete for the award.
According to the organisation, the awards is aimed 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.
