UNESCO LAUNCHES WORLD PRESS FREEDOM PRIZE 2008

Organisations working in the field of journalism and freedom of expression are invited to submit nominations for the 2008 UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize.

The US$25,000 award honours a journalist or organisation that has made a notable contribution to the defence and promotion of press freedom anywhere in the world, especially if this involved risk.

Named after the Colombian journalist who was killed 20 years ago for criticising the country's drug lords, the award is presented each year on World Press Freedom Day, 3 May.

Organisations can nominate a maximum of three candidates. Self-nominations are not accepted.

The deadline for submissions is 30 January 2008.
