BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

Digital ActivismThe 2015 Freedom of Expression Digital Activism Award-winner is journalist Tamás Bodoky, who founded the investigative news website Atlatszo.hu to promote a free press in Hungary, a country where journalists and news organisations face recently introduced media taxes, a proposed internet tax for citizens, smear campaigns and police-run office raids.

Atlatszo acts as watchdog to an increasingly authoritarian Hungarian government.

“The recognition is very helpful. We are always afraid of retaliation and this offers us a level of protection… Hungarian authorities are very aware of this international attention and it is less likely that they will attack as we continue with our investigative projects.”
