They will be honoured at the inaugural awards dinner by theAmerica Abroad Media (AAM) in Washington DC on October 28. "Their work exemplifies the power of media to inform, educate and empower citizens about the critical social and public policy issues of our time," America Abroad Media said in a statement.

Founded by Peter Ackerman, the ICNC produces award-winning documentaries on the role of non-violent resistance in promoting democratic change.
