Promoting local journalism is an important purpose for the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, because in this field remains a lot of work to be done. By awarding the price the foundation wants to appreciate the local journalists, who are often working under harsh conditions. We understand the support of local journalism as support of democratization, because it is through local media that citizens get informed about the social and political problems and developments in their respective regions. This information will encourage citizens to participate in decision-making processes on the ground.
