The “Suitcase” journalistic contest is aimed at motivating for a high-quality thematic media coverage. By encouraging the production of professional and impressive media content on the processes relating to refugees, displaced and stateless persons, and migrants in Armenia, we aim to inspire journalists for applying more comprehensive, accurate and impartial approaches in media work with displaced persons and migrants.
