The Journalism as a Profession Awards is an annual event that takes place in one of Europe’s capital cities. The event brings together independent Russian-language journalists.
There are six categories of awards and the nominations are made by journalists and editors from leading publications. The six categories are: investigative journalism, opinion, new media, panorama report, interview with photos, and regional report.
The shortlist is then drawn up by members of an expert council, who select five contributions for each category. The winners from each category are then chosen by a separate jury consisting of prominent journalists, experts and civil society representatives.
