Kristin Skare Orgeret is awarded Communicator of the year

The award is granted biannually by The Norwegian Association of Media Researchers

The jury pointed out that Orgeret is actively contributing to the public debate with a media perspective on political, social and cultural aspects of our contemporary society, both nationally and internationally and with special emphasis on a North-South perspective. She continuously contributes to draw attention to how gender is represented in media and thereby to keep the pressure on Norwegian editors to work for a more equal gender representation.

The jury underlined that Orgeret is making significant efforts to put important research issues on the national media agenda, and thus contributes to build bridges between research and the public sphere.

JMIC’s leader Elisabeth Eide was awarded the prize in 2008.
