Rukmini Callimachi of The New York Times has received Integrity in Journalism Award.
The award was established by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) jointly with Aurora Prize Committee.
The award was bestowed by the ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan.
The ICFJ Integrity in Journalism Award is bestowed upon reporters for their courage, commitment and impact on the front lines of the world’s crisis zones.
The 100 LIVES and the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity recognize people who have risked their lives to help others, including for helping Armenians after the Genocide in 1915.
The Aurora Prize had four finalists this year. They were Marguerite Barankitse, Dr. Tom Catena, Syeda Ghulam Fatima from Pakistan; and Father Bernard Kinvi from the Central African Republic.
On behalf of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide and in gratitude to their saviors, the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity will be granted annually to an individual whose actions have had an exceptional impact on preserving human life and advancing humanitarian causes.
