Impressions of the awarding of the Prize for the Freedom and Future of the Media 2017 to Asli Erdogan and Deniz Yücel
On 6 October 2017, the Prize for the Freedom and Future of the Media 2017 was awarded at Media Campus Villa Ida. In
2017, Media Foundation of the Sparkasse Leipzig honoured the Turkish
author and journalist Asli Erdogan and the German-Turkish journalist
Deniz Yücel. Because Yücel is still imprisoned in Turkey, his sister Ilkay Yücel accepted the prize for him. The
Leipzig Speech to Media and Press Freedom was held by Werner Schulz,
former member of the German Bundestag and of the European Parliament.
