“We are very excited to hear about our APEX Award, which acknowledges the great design, and high standard of journalism here at Index on Censorship magazine,” Rachael Jolley, Index magazine’s editor, said. “There are enormous threats to freedom of expression across the world in 2017, and hopefully this award will help us bring knowledge of this to a wider audience.”

Index on Censorship magazine received a Grand Award as part of the 29th annual APEX Awards.

Judges noted that the Index magazine serves as a “vitally important and extremely relevant” resource in outlining threats to media freedoms globally.

“Dealing with such serious worldwide issues as covering war zones, protecting sources in an era of mass surveillance, life as a reporter in Syria and how journalists are dealing with accusations that they threaten national security, Index on Censorship’s 250th issue tackles these professionally and thoroughly,” judges added.

The awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the success of the entry in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. Out of 1,361 entries, 100 APEX Grand Awards were presented in 11 major categories.
