The first prize was awarded to Lusine Manvelyan, Seda Arakelyan and Christina Avanyan – journalists from the “Hetq” Media Media Factory - for their article “We didn’t feel like we were in our country”: why Russians are resettling in Armenia?”

The second prize was awarded to Anahit Harutyunyan – a journalist with the EVN Report, for her two-part article “Ill and in Anticipation of a Miracle in Germany”.

The third prize was simultaneously awarded to two authors: Suren Deheryan from the Ampop.am news agency for his “On the way of wandering: Stories of Ukrainian women who fled the war” project and Gohar Abrahamyan – a journalist with the EVN Report – for her article “Displacement: starting again and again.” It should be noted that Gohar is also last year’s winner. 

Five more people were awarded incentive prizes:
