2016 International Press Freedom Award
  • Indian journalist Malini Subramaniam was conferred with the 2016 International Press Freedom Award.

  • She has been honored for her reporting from the Naxal-infested Bastar area and for the commitment to a free press.

  • The International Press Freedom Award honors journalists or their publications around the world for showing courage in defending press freedom despite facing attacks, threats or imprisonment.

  • The award was established in 1991 and is administered by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), an independent NGO based in New York, US.

  • In addition to recognizing individuals, CPJ seeks to focus local and international media coverage on countries where violations of press freedom are particularly serious.
