Young Reader Awards

The Young Reader Newspaper of the Year and winner of the Enduring Excellence Awards, Jawa Pos of Indonesia, turns out with a 40-strong group of supporters to celebrate the triumph. The paper has delivered consistently excellent service for young people, providing a daily youth section, which has led to 51% of their readership being under 30 years old. The paper also provides activities outside of print, such as a basketball league for young people.

Other community initiatives that are recognised include bike-athons held by I-Next India; SEED, an ecological seed-planting scheme operated by The Hindu of India; and the media labs of the Portugese Diario di Noticias.

The Wall Street Journal receives the top editorial award for its investigative journalism. WSJ headed an investigation into the way in which children’s online data was tracked and sold to advertisers. As a result, laws were passed to prohibit tracking of children’s online activity without parental consent.
