EU-funded ‘Samir Kassir Award for Press Freedom’ improves journalists’ lives
Winning last year’s edition of the EU-sponsored ‘Samir Kassir Award for Press Freedom’ has improved the life of young Lebanese freelance journalist Carole Kerbage, as she told ANSA news agency. "With the prize money (12,500 Euros), I have improved my life. I've become more independent economically and I have gained more confidence in my abilities," says Kerbage, who is planning on carrying on her journalism studies abroad.
The deadline for entries to the fifth edition of the ‘Samir Kassir Award for Freedom of the Press’, that takes the name of the Lebanese journalist, historian and intellectual who was assassinated in Beirut in June 2005, is March 30.
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre available in English, French and Arabic. (ENPI Info Centre)
