Danish journalist Brigitte Alfter, who has been active in Scoop from its start 2003, has won the award ‘Prize for the Freedom and the Future of the Media’ from the German Leipziger Medien Stiftung. Brigitte won the award together with her partner in European Fund for Investigative Journalism, the Belgian journalist Ides Debruyne.
The European fund is based on the same concept as Scoop, direct support of invistigative journalism projects, and has e.g. supported the report on ‘Latvian Brides’.
The Danish association for investigative journalism (Foreningen for Undersøgende Journalistik) and the rest of the Scoop-crews congratulate Brigitte and Ides.
