MIAMI, Oct. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — On October 26, the Inter-American Institute for Democracy (IID) recognized Manuel Aguilera, Founder and CEO of HispanoPost Media Group, with the “Horacio Aguirre 2016” Award for Excellence in Journalism, for the creation and successful implementation of the innovative HispanoPost project, as well as its special contribution as a media platform in the struggle for democracy in Latin America.
The award presented at Miami Dade College – Wolfson Campus in Miami, was personally received by Manuel Aguilera, Founder and Director of HispanoPost. This award is part of the three annual mentions of the Inter-American Prize to the Defenders of the freedom of the press Horacio Aguirre. The nomination and granting of the same is done by the Council and Board of the Institute in November each year and is chaired by the writer and intellectual Carlos Alberto Montaner.
“It is an honor to receive this award recognizing HispanoPost for its innovative approach to news reporting and the practice of journalism. The struggle for freedom of expression throughout America makes more sense than ever and new technologies are a perfect tool to pursue that goal. That the award bears the name of Horacio Aguirre is also very inspiring. Aguirre was a brave pioneer of Spanish-language journalism in the United States and faced with determination all those who threatened freedom of expression in Latin America,” says Aguilera.
In this sense, the Executive Director of the Carlos Sánchez Berzaín Institute commented: “The jury of the award has recognized the response that the digital news platform led by Aguilera gives the growing need that exists between a new audience that grasps the news and reality through technology, quality and video.”
The ceremony was presided over by the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, who was honored with the “Francisco de Miranda Prize” for his work in defense of democracy and the Inter-American Democratic Charter, promoting the strengthening of the rule of law. In the Journalism category, Jorge Lanata was also recognized for his outstanding work in documenting and denouncing the scourge of corruption that prevents countries from developing, and the Ecuadorian organization, Fundamedios, for its continued struggle to preserve freedom of expression.
