Médor wins media innovation prize


For the second year running, the International Organisation of la Francophonie (OIF), Reporters Without Border (RSF), and Radio France International (RFI) have awarded the Prize for Innovation in the Francophone Media. Médor, a Belgian investigative journalism quarterly, won the much coveted third prize!

The three prizes were awarded on Monday 3 April 2017. It's official, the Belgian quarterly Médor earned third place, and thus received a €3,500 prize. According to the organisers, Médor offers a "co-operative environment in which to build information and provides in-field, in-depth journalism which is independent, demanding and fun".

The Prize for Innovation in the Francophone Media is awarded to media of all types (radio, television, print journalism and digital media) from the 58 member states and governments of la Francophonie. However the prize is awarded in particular to media outlets which have developed innovative solutions that take into account new modes of consumption and access to information. Furthermore, it rewards media outlets which contribute to strengthening the freedom of the press and public freedom of information. We are therefore very proud of this recognition of Belgian media at both a national and international level.
