Registration opens for WAN-IFRA World Young Readers Prizes

The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) has opened registration for the 2015 World Young Reader Prizes, which annually honour news media that develop strategies and projects to effectively engage children, teenagers and young adults under the age of 25. Attacks on press freedom figure strongly in this year’s awards and a special category for "teaching freedom" will honour projects that make sure new generations understand the importance and fragility of freedom of expression and the role of journalists who have worked and died in its service.

Entries are being accepted now until May 5, 2015.

Full details can be found at The awards will be presented on 3 September in Mumbai, India, as part of the WAN-IFRA India Conference & Expo.
