Open Estonia Foundation gives Koosmeel award to Postimees

April 14, 2016

The council of the Open Estonia Foundation decided to award this year's Koosmeel prize to AS Eesti Meedia's Postimees as recognition for closing its anonymous comments section.

Postimees' upright action of closing its anonymous comments section has noticeably contributed to the development of a high-quality, content-rich opinion environment in the public information sphere, the foundation said when explaining their decision.

The Open Estonia Foundation created the Koosmeel (Unity) award in 1997. Laureates are chosen annually by the time of the foundation's birthday in April.
