This year, the competition received 71 articles by 59 authors from 16 countries. Many of these articles were of excellent quality and the jury had a hard time coming to a decision.

The jury made its decision based on fact accuracy, amount of author’s work, avoiding clichés, and the originality of the chosen topic among other factors. This competition has also seen a difference in the quality of articles between professional and beginner journalists.
