Our Network – IPI pioneers
IPI-IMS Free Media Pioneers are trailblazing media or press freedom organisations that have opened up new frontiers for the free flow of news and information in their countries.
IPI established the Free Media Pioneer Award in 1997. The award is given annually at the IPI World Congress.
Since 2015, IPI has been proud to present the Free Media Pioneer Award in partnership with International Media Support (IMS).
This award is not only for those that form the network Periodistas de a Pie. This prize is for all journalists who are fighting a great battle in Mexico to disarm the machine of death, to break censorship, to reveal corruption and human rights violations. To tell the world what the world does not want to see.
