Línea Directa Foundation

Road Safety Journalism Award


Línea Directa is fully aware of how important it is to broadcast news on road safety and the key role played by the media in promoting safe driving habits and, as a result, in 2004 it held the Road Safety Journalism Awards for the first time with the aim of encouraging the creation and dissemination of reports focusing on this particular issue.

Awards are presented in three different categories of journalism: Press, Radio and Television, each one offering a prize of 10,000 euros. There are two further awards, the Honorary Award and the Solidarity Award, in which the finalists are selected by a renowned Committee of Experts. These two categories, created in 2008 and now firmly established, are designed to recognise each year the work and the initiatives of different personalities, institutions or associations which focus on road safety.
