THE ION RAȚIU
JOURNALISM AWARD

The Ion Rațiu Journalism Award was established in 2015, inspired by the example of Ion Rațiu who, upon his return to Romania after 50 years in exile, fought for the freedom of the press, a necessary condition of any functional democracy. The Award promotes and encourages investigative journalism in Romania by rewarding the most important achievements of journalists. The nominations of investigative journalists are made by the Center for Independent Journalism, Active Watch, and by representatives of Romanian journalism faculties and departments.
