The Index Freedom of Expression Awards took place on Wednesday 28 March at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Before an audience of 400, Jonathan Dimbleby presented awards to the heroes of free expression - those who have put their lives and jobs at risk to defend the inalienable right to express themselves freely.
Index on Censorship was proud to give awards to Nabeel Rajab of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, Upenyu Makoni-Muchemwa of Kubatana, Ali Ferzat, Irina Flige of the Research and Information Centre 'Memorial' St Petersburg and Idrak Abbasov.
Many thanks to all those who attended the Awards, at which we celebrated our 40th birthday, and to our sponsors SAGE, Bindmans, Google and the Guardian.
