IAPA CALLS FOR ENTRIES FOR 2008 EXCELLENCE IN JOURNALISM AWARDS

The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) invites media organisations in the Americas to submit entries for the Grand Prize for Press Freedom, as part of its 2008 Excellence in Journalism Awards.

The Grand Prize for Press Freedom will be awarded to a person or organisation who has significantly contributed to advancing the cause of the freedom of the press. This year's winner was Marcel Granier, president of Venezuelan television station RCTV, and the station's journalists, for defending their right to free speech after it lost its broadcasting license.

Besides the Press Freedom Prize, awards for outstanding journalism will be given in 11 categories: international relations; human rights; news coverage; features; in-depth reporting; photography; cartoons; infographics; opinion; newspaper in education; and online news coverage.

The competition is open to English, Spanish or Portuguese news articles published in 2007 in a newspaper, magazine or online publication. The deadline for entries is 31 January 2008.
