Robert Fisk, The Independent's Middle East correspondent, will receive the International Prize today at the prestigious Amalfi Coast Media Awards in Italy.
The awards celebrate the best of contemporary journalism in Italy and abroad and the winners are chosen by a jury of senior figures in the industry. In honouring Mr Fisk the jury said he demonstrated "objectivity and a desire to bring the news, whatever the cost".
"He is there to report the facts that shape the world, so that we can live the events as they happen, and not just narrate from the outside," the jury added.
