Information about the awarding entity:

The Arab Media Forum was established in 2003 as a media initiative aiming at creating a strategic Arab media atmosphere to resolve the Arab contradictions, and to agree upon a minimum level of solidarity in an attempt to realize the risks and the effects of the psychological and propaganda campaigns launched against the Arab Nation to impose a fait accompli and to reinforce the media hegemony of others. This goal would be achieved by innovating a renewable media discourse  which accepts all trends, interacts with them and opens all the doors with complete transparency, while emphasizing the values of unity, the higher interest of our Arab Nation and its security as well as fighting the elements of division while respecting the social and political choices of each Arab country within the framework of a code of ethics and honor that serves as an umbrella for the Arab media without any prejudice to its expression and development potentials.

The Forum aims at enhancing the Arab media discourse and opening the door to all trends with a classy dialogue while employing modern technological tools to design an advanced vision for the Arab media, not only as consumers of the media product but also as participants in the Arab and regional media map.
