Anti-Corruption Prize

The Barbara Adams Prize for Investigative Journalism against Corruption is awarded each year for investigative journalism exposing corruption. The Mega Bank of Nepal kindly offered a good rate of interest on $10,000 invested. Each year the prize will be the interest on the account.

This prize was set up in conjunction with the School of Journalism and the editor of the Kathmandu Post. Journalists were invited to submit their work and a panel of professors and the editor made the choice.
