About ARIJ Annual Awards
The year 2021 marks the ARIJ 12th Annual Awards, which honoured Arab journalists who took on scathing criticism, faced reluctant sources, and risked retaliation, to bring to light corruption and injustice in their societies. The ARIJ Awards acknowledge the integrity and professionalism of these journalists; setting benchmarks for future generations to model. The awards are nonpartisan and independent of all factions, organizations, political parties, corporations, labor unions, religions or causes beyond investigative reporting itself.
