Teodora is an investigative journalist who has distinguished herself by working on stories based on data. This was particularly pointed out by this year’s jury.
“Teodora is a girl who deals with many important topics, in a highly professional manner and with great attention. She also knows her way around multimedia and large databases,” said Jelena Radivojević, last year’s winner of this award.
The award for daily journalism went to Milica Milosavljević, a journalist from the Dnevnik editorial office at Radio Television of Serbia, who reports professionally on the migrant crisis, online crime and other social issues.
The annual award for the best young journalists from Serbia under the age of 30 has been awarded by the Novi Sad School of Journalism every year since 2001 for exceptional continuous work, with the goal of promoting professionalism, critical thinking, knowledge, and ethics. Since 2018, the award has been named after Marina Kovačev, a prominent young journalist and activist.
This year’s jury consisted of last year’s laureates, journalist Jelena Radivojević of the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network, journalist Filip Lukić, representative of the Marina Kovačev Foundation Svetlana Bošković, associate professor Siniša Isakov and founder of the Novi Sad School of Journalism, Prof. Dubravka Valić Nedeljković.
This award was previously received by two other CINS journalists: Dina Đorđević in 2018 and Jovana Tomić in 2020.
