Call for nominations: Press Freedom Teaching Award

The News Media Literacy Award is designed to honor front-line teachers and news media organizations in the quest to help students understand the “why” of press freedom.

Educators and journalists who help students learn about the importance of press freedom will be honored by a special award in the 2023 edition of the Global Youth & News Media Prize.

The Press Freedom Teaching Award will recognize excellence in assuring that students develop a thorough understanding of the crucial role of journalism in society and of the sometimes deadly risks for people who do this work. It will serve as the news/literacy category for this year’s prize.

Entries from educators and news media organizations will be assessed by a distinguished, international panel of judges that will include both experts in the topic and past laureates.

Registration opens 15 March with a deadline for entries of 1 May. You can find more about the competition here.
