Nominations accepted for International Hrant Dink Award

The Hrant Dink Award is presented to individuals, organisations or groups that work for a just world, free from discrimination, racism and violence, who take personal risks to achieve those goals. As the Hrant Dink Foundation calls for this year's nominations, it aims to remind all those who struggle for these ideals that their voices are heard and their work is visible.

Each year the award is presented to two individuals: one from Turkey and one from abroad. The deadline for nominations is 15 April.

Journalist Hrant Dink launched the first Turkish-Armenian weekly, "Agos" in 1996. He wrote critically about Turkish-Armenian relations in an attempt to broaden the debate on several issues. On 19 January 2007 he was shot dead in front of his newspaper office.
