“Maybe the Index on Censorship
award kept me from getting killed”

Idrak Abbasov, Azerbaijan
Journalism Award Winner 2012


For the past 14 years the Index Awards have honoured some of the most remarkable fighters for free expression from around the world - from assassinated Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya to Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim and Syrian cartoonist Ali Farzat to education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Drawn from over 300 public nominations, this year’s shortlists are as strong as ever.

Join us on Thursday 20th March to meet international free-expression champions and to shine a light on their ongoing struggle against censorship around the world.
