When the world learned of the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, it brought the dangers journalists face today squarely into focus.
At the International Press Freedom Awards, CPJ launched a campaign to honor Khashoggi and to highlight the importance of journalism.
CPJ is inviting people to share why journalism matters to them, in recognition that Khashoggi was brutally murdered just for sharing his opinion.
Never have so many different types of journalists reported the news on so many different platforms. Yet no matter the form of journalism—from investigative to beat reporting, foreign correspondence to domestic coverage, blogging to photojournalism— thorough preparation is the starting point.
