Among the shortlisted candidates are Vullnet Krasniqi (Koha Ditore, Kosovo), Irfan Hosic (Dani, Bosnia and Herzegovina), Gordana Popovic (Politika, Serbia) and Valentina Milenkovic (Novine Vranjske, Serbia).

The award will be given to the best investigative and analytical story dealing with some aspect of cultural policy in the region, which has been published between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2012.

The Culture Watch Award is launched by the Balkan Initiative for Cultural Cooperation Exchange and Development, BICCED, and funded by the Swiss Cultural Programme in the Western Balkans.

During the past three years over 30 journalists from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo took part in the BICCED project.

 The journalists gained new skills in reporting on cultural policy in the region and their articles were published on the Balkan Insight's focus page “Culture Watch“.

The Culture Watch Award is the next step in strengthening analytical and investigative approaches to reporting on cultural policy.

Applications received from the journalists were evaluated by a jury comprised of six experts on cultural policy in the region and one internationally awarded journalist.

The winners will be announced at the final event of the BICCED project – the regional conference „What is (to be) done“ that will take place in Dom Omladine in Belgrade on November 28.
