The Nepal International Press Club is searching for nominees for its 31st “International Journalism Peace Award”, according to its president Ram Krishna Karmacharys.

  In a note to the Chicago Journalists Association, he wrote that the award is presented every three years “in recognition of building peace and harmony throughout the globe.” Karmacharys said the organization’s selection committee consists of scholars and media personnel. “Informing the public with the truth and factual information is our ethical norms. Furthermore, we are a sincere and dedicated organization disciplined to protect occupational rights, as well.”

      Karmacharys said his panel of experts have visited other countries in an effort to obtain the names of candidates and indicated a trip to the U.S. was probable in the near future. Presentation of this prestigious award is to be made during the first week in March, 2016. It isn’t clear whether the ceremony will take place in Nepal or the winner’s country.
