IFJ Journalism for Tolerance Prize Final Call for Entries

The IFJ is making a final call for entries for the IFJ Journalism for Tolerance Prize.


The IFJ Journalism for Tolerance Prize, promoting tolerance, combating racism and discrimination, will be awarded to journalists in five regions of the world.


Applications will be accepted up until two weeks before the Jury meeting in each of the five regions in which the Prize is running. The different regions and the date at which final applications will be accepted until are:


South East Asia : Friday 31 January, 2003

South Asia: Friday 21 February, 2003

Eastern and Southern Africa: Friday 21 February, 2003

Central and Western Africa: Friday 21 February, 2003

Latin America: Friday 28 February, 2003



In each region a total prize pool of €3,000 will be awarded for entries in three separate categories: print/on-line, radio and television.


The Prize, supported by the European Union, has been launched at a time when cultural, religious and ethnic differences are increasingly contributing to instability and unrest in many regions of the world.


Entries should be submitted directly to the IFJ Journalism for Tolerance Prize office in the relevant region (a list of offices is attached to this release) and must be submitted in accordance with the rules of the competition.


PLEASE NOTE:


Entry forms are available from the IFJ, journalists' organisations in each region or online www.ifj.org/hrights/tolerance/prize.html
