The Gavin MacFadyen Award

will honour Gavin's life and achievements

and inspire journalists to


It will be awarded annually to journalists or publishers

who have helped whistleblowers expose the truth.

Nominations will be invited from whistleblowers in due course as the full details of this annual award are now being finalised.

Gavin's wife Susan has given us her approval for the award.

This Award will fight back against those who bring journalism into disrepute

 (see the Fake Sheikh and #Don'tBuyTheSun for examples).


Gavin's commitment to supporting whistleblowers,

not only the famous ones but ALL whistlers from all sectors,

is a timely reminder of

what REAL investigative journalism is, and can achieve.

  "Go out and tell the truth!"
