Georgian Journalist Wins IWPR Fellowship: Georgian journalist Nino Chipchiuri will spend a month-long fellowship at the headquarters of the Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR) in London after winning the European Union’s Special Prize for Peace Journalism.

The prize was established in 2012 and recognises reporting that promotes a peaceful solution on both sides of the conflict divide, contributes to a better understanding of the values of the European Union and reflects high standards of journalistic ethics and professionalism.

Chipchiuri, the third winner of the prize, comes from the Shida Kartli region in central Georgia.

“This prize brings the greatest joy to me and the responsibility to be a more active participant in the peace process,” she told IWPR.

She was honoured for an article called Doctors of the Conflict Region are Building Bridges of Health, published online by Women Connecting for Peace.

The award has given her so much motivation, she added, that she is continuously thinking about new projects that can help build new relations between Georgians and Ossetians.
