The Thomson Foundation Young Journalist Award, part of the prestigious Foreign Press Association (FPA) Media Awards, recognises excellence in human rights reporting by journalists aged 30 and under. Through intelligent, compassionate and dignified reporting, the journalists contribute to public awareness by revealing stories about their communities. In many cases, governments have taken action to deal with the issues highlighted.
