On 22 January, the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia and the EU Delegation to Georgia held the award ceremony for the winners of the 2019 EU Prize for Journalism in Tbilisi.

The ceremony included the handing of the Special Prize for Peace Journalism, which went to Mamuka Kuparadze and his TV piece titled ‘An Interview with Temur Tskurbhat’. The journalist works at Studio Re in Tbilisi and his interview demonstrated fair, balanced and unbiased reporting.

The prize will allow Kuparadze to participate in a one-month fellowship at the headquarters of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting in London.

The EUMM awards the Special Prize for Peace Journalism for conflict-sensitive journalism that contributes to confidence-building and peace, and encourages reporting that builds bridges between divided communities.

The EU Delegation awarded the winners in six categories covering print, broadcast, online, and photo journalism.
