King Felipe VI Presents Spanish International Journalism Awards

MADRID – King Felipe VI presented on Thursday the King of Spain International Journalism Awards to reporters from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Peru for their distinguished work in various media categories.

In this 32nd edition of the awards ceremony, granted with cooperation from Efe and the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, King Felipe expressed his satisfaction with the vitality of journalism and stressed the importance of commitment to democracy and “free press” as a critical component to building a “community that every day gets more just and democratic.”

During the ceremony held at the Casa del Lector of Madrid, the monarch referred to the adaptability of journalism to new technologies and “new narrative styles,” especially important given the “growing importance” of social networks which have “revolutionized the classical idea of personal and collective communication.”

The king praised Efe for its continuous process of adapting to changing times, while, for his part, Efe President José Antonio Vera highlighted that the hallmark of the agency has always been “a commitment to information,” and said that after it celebrated its 75th anniversary last year, EFE commemorates in 2015 two other milestones.

The year 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of Fundeu, the foundation that standardizes Spanish language in the media, and the 25th of Efeagro, which promotes “rigorous and accurate information about the world of food in Spain.”

Vera said that Efe is part of the image of Spain and Latin America abroad, adding: “This year we set for ourselves the objective of strengthening our presence in the Asia through services in Arabic and English.”

Felipe VI handed this year’s awards to Bolivian Roberto Navia Gabriel (Press), Brazilian Domingos Peixoto (Photography), Argentina’s Maria Arce and the Colombian Jose Fernando Lopez (Digital Journalism), Spaniards Margarita Esparza (Radio), Nuria Mejias and José Luis Fernandez Cabeza (Environmental Journalism) and Colombian Juan Carlos Iragorri (TV).

A total of 206 works from 18 countries vied for this year’s journalism awards.
