Now in its fifth year, the Courage in Journalism Award was established following the death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, the respected Maltese freelance journalist who was murdered by a car bomb in October 2017. Daphne’s son Paul worked at the Institute and, following her death, we created this Award to honour her legacy and shine a spotlight on the dangers faced by journalists worldwide.

Every year, the Courage in Journalism Award recognises the journalists whose lives have had a significant impact on the pursuit of truth and justice and who have been tragically killed in the last 12 months.
