Freedom of Expression Awards Fellowship: Supporting efforts to defeat censorship
02 Apr 2017

The Freedom of Expression Awards Fellowship programme offers direct support to groups and individuals striving to defeat censorship globally.

Every year, Index attracts a diverse field of strong public nominations. From journalists to campaigners, and digital activists to artists, over 400 candidates are nominated from across the world – all are introduced to Index on Censorship and offered our support.

From this field, 16 are selected as the annual Freedom of Expression Awards shortlist. Index works closely with this entire shortlist, raising awareness of their important stories and

Finally, four of the most remarkable candidates are chosen by an independent panel of judges to take part in a year-long Freedom of Expression Awards Fellowship.

Fellows receive a specially curated week of advanced training and networking, 12 months of ongoing strategic support, and become part of a supportive global community of free expression champions.

Through the fellowship, Index on Censorship seeks to maximise the impact of award winners’ ongoing work, support their sustainability and push back censorship worldwide.
