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.
