The Center for International Media Ethics (CIME) is holding an "Ethicontest". The deadline coming up soon (Nov. 14), and I wanted to call your attention to it.
This media ethics contest for journalists and media professionals from all over the world has the following essay topic: "Dissemination of information: government interests, national security and freedom of speech - how to strike the right balance?....Is it ok for the media to tell the truth to the public when national security is at risk? How does a journalist decide if his/her reporting compromises government interests? How does the media avoid confrontation with the government in the wake of such a scenario?"
