Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s (RFE/RL) Belarus Service took home nine awards at an inaugural, national media competition called “Belarusian Journalism—Focus On Innovation.”
“We’re extremely proud of the recognition our work gets from peers,” said Belarus Service Director Alexander Lukashuk. “But what’s even more important is that the work is not only recognized for excellence, but followed, emulated, further developed—and that’s RFERL’s mission as well.”
Lukashuk added that far from being just about new formats and platforms for storytelling and creative use of multimedia, innovation must be “a state of mind.”
The winners were recognized at a February 8 ceremony in Minsk.
