In recognising individuals and organisations, often working in dangerous and difficult conditions, Index makes a commitment to them.
Four Fellows Receive a Year of Support
Fellows join Index for a week of training and 12 months of support to maximize the impact of their work.
Index Helps Fellows Remain Active
Index aids troubleshooting, building and broadening partnerships and offers advice on strategy, operations and finance.
Index collaborates with fellows to identify a year-long project and works closely with them to achieve this goal.
Index Amplifies Fellows’ Work
Index promotes fellows’ ongoing work through the magazine, website and social media.
Fellows Join Worldwide Network
Fellows join a supportive global community of free expression champions. They are encouraged to keep in touch with Index and the wider network.
Selected from over 400 public nominations and a shortlist of 16, the 2017 Freedom of Expression Awards Fellows exemplify courage in the face of censorship. Learn more about the fellowship.
