Investigative Journalism Competition 2015

In 2015 we hosted another Investigative Journalism Competition. After the competition in 2014, there were still many issues of corruption and human rights that were undercovered. Thus, participants were invited to address and investigate these issues.


nce again we invited all interested in corruption and human rights to take part in the Investigative Journalism Competition. This time, a prize fund of 1500 EUR was established. As the rules changed, candidates with the best investigation plans and competencies in the first round were awarded with 1000 EUR stipends to implement their investigative projects. Others were invited to use their investigative skills and compete for the remaining prize. Participants, seeking to create quality media content, were working on their projects on corruption and human rights starting in April, drafting their investigation plans and consulting with their mentors. The Commission selected the best 9 candidates and their works for the second round of the competition.
