While opening the ceremony, Internews’ Regional Director for Europe and Eurasia Gillian McCormack told that our organization has been proud to support this contest since its foundation back in 2010.
Since 1993, Internews has been working in Ukraine with journalists, public officials, civil society activists and citizens. Through grant support and targeted technical assistance, Internews helps a wide array of local partners carry out projects that they design and implement themselves. These initiatives include educating citizens and journalists about the public service role of a responsible media sector, increasing the quality and quantity of investigative reporting by local journalists, helping traditional media increase their online offerings, providing legal support to journalists and media outlets, and reforming media legislation to approach European standards. Through trainings, consultations, and grants, Internews also helps its partners build their own organizational capacity in finance, administration, digital security, and other areas.
