IMG_0193MINUTES OF THE JURY OF THE III EDITION OF THE JOURNALISTIC CONTEST ¨ PAPEL PERIÓDICO DE LA HABANA¨ OF THE ASOCIACIÓN PRO LIBERTAD DE PRENSA DE CUBA

In Santa Fe, on October 15, 2015 the Jury of the III Edition of the Journalistic Contest ¨Papel Periódico de la Habana¨, of the Asociación Pro Libertad de Prensa de Cuba (APLP), met to deliberate on the works presented to the contest.

The Competition ¨Papel Periódico de La Habana¨, born in 2013 by the initiative of the directives of APLP, inspired by that first press body, ¨ Papel Periódico de La Habana¨ that the Havana Creoles were able to found, to the style of those that were printed in other countries. The Papel Periódico de La Habanafulfilled the longings of so many Cubans that aspired to participate in the administrative matters of the country, taking this way the first step toward the independence from Spain.

In spite of the strong repression that suffers the freedom of the press and of expression in Cuba, APLP has insisted, through the Contest ¨ Papel Periódico de La Habana¨, in highlighting, against all sorts of difficulties, the good development that the independent journalists have achieved in the biggest of the Antilles, in spite of not having the best conditions for it.

Therefore we should highlight that, in the Contest of this year, a figure record of participants of excellent quality was reached, through for example, of opinion articles written by Roberto de Jesús Quiñones Haces and Miriam Celaya, of interviews, as the one carried out by Manuel Guerra Paz, of chronic, as those of Rogelio Fabio Hurtado and René Gómez Manzano and of reports like that of León Padrón Ascuy.

All the works sent to the competition, published in digital independent means during the course of 2015, represent true consultation documents, not only for the investigation they contribute, but for their right and objective analysis and their meticulous attachment to the truth of the Cuban reality, reasons that already grant them a good place in the History of the country.

Lawyers, educators, writers and journalists that take some time in this spreading work, investigated on the most fundamental topics in our society, silenced by the official press and making the best use of their knowledge about the investigation journalism.

In the competition of the current year, journalist Roberto de Jesús Quiñones Haces was distinguished with
