International Hrant Dink Award: Call for Nominations


As I've just received an email from the Hrant Dink Memorial Foundation to spread information about this year's Hrant Dink International Award through the Global Voices network, it also seems appropriate to spread through this one as well. Hrant Dink, a Turkish citizen of Armenian descent, was assassinated in Istanbul in January 2007. In addition to his work as a journalist and newspaper editor, Dink was also a genuine advocate for freedom of speech, human rights and peace between nations. As such, it is only fitting that an award exists to honor both his memory and others advocating and struggling for the same.


The International Hrant Dink Award is waiting for your nominees

The International Hrant Dink Award winners will be announced on September 15th, 2011.

Every year, the Award will be presented to individuals, organisations or groups that work for a free and just world free from discrimination, racism and violence, who take personal risks for achieving those ideals, who break the stereotypes and use the language of peace and by doing so give inspiration and hope to others. By means of this Award, the Hrant Dink Foundation aims to remind to all those who struggle for these ideals that their voices are heard, their works are visible, they are not alone, and also to encourage everyone to fight for their ideals. This year proposals for nominations will be accepted from October 15th 2010 to April 15th 2011.
