NOMINATIONS WANTED FOR INTERNATIONAL FREEDOM TO PUBLISH PRIZE

The International Publishers' Association (IPA) is asking international organisations working in the field of freedom of expression to submit nominations for the International Freedom to Publish Prize.

The prize, worth 5,000 Swiss Francs (US$4,500), recognises individuals and organisations that have shown exemplary courage in upholding freedom of expression and the freedom to publish.

Last year's winner was Zimbabwean publisher Trevor N'cube, while special prizes were also given posthumously to Anna Politkovskaya and Hrant Dink.

The award will be presented at the International Seminar on Neo-Censorship in September in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The deadline for nominations is 18 April 2008. Nomination forms can be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com/2g6zer
