BULGARIAN JOURNALIST WINS 2007 DR. ERHARD BUSEK-SEEMO AWARD

Bulgarian Milena Dimitrova, commentator for the Sofia newspaper "Trud", is this year's winner of the Dr. Erhard Busek-SEEMO 2007 Award. Dimitrova, who holds a PhD in journalism and teaches investigative journalism at a Sofia university, has also been a reporter and presenter of a TV programme dedicated to exposing corruption, and has written for the Bulgarian weekly "168 Hours" and the daily "Debati".

Sponsored by Dr. Erhard Busek, a former vice-chancellor of Austria, the annual award goes to a journalist in southeast Europe who has promoted understanding in the region and worked towards solving minority-related problems. Busek and officials of the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), presented the 2,000 Euro prize ($US 2,850) on 19 October in Vienna, Austria.
