    The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) invites applications for the World Press Freedom Prize 2009. The prize (valued at 25,000 American dollars) honours a person, organization, or institution that has made a notable contribution to the defence and/or promotion of press freedom anywhere in the world, especially if this involved risk.

    Organizations may nominate a maximum of three candidates. Self-nominations are not
    accepted. For more information, visit: http://portal.unesco.org/ci/en/ev.php-URL_ID=27694&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html.
