The Titus Brandsma Award honours journalists, publishers, professors of communication,
publications or institutes who have suffered threats or persecution because of their engagement in the media on behalf of an important human or Christian issue. The award also recognises initiatives for promoting dialogue and human dignity through the media. The Titus Brandsma Award is bestowed by three groups working in partnership: the Dutch Province of Carmelites, the Dutch Catholic Bishops' Conference; and the International Catholic Union of the Press (UCIP).
