Access to Information Programme
FOI activists from Sofia and the country gathered at the Literature club Peroto (The Quill) in the National Palace of Culture – Sofia to celebrate the 16th Right to Know Day Awards Ceremony. Among the guests were partner NGOs, journalists, academia; officials from executive bodies and municipalities. The Deputy Ombudsman of the Republic of Bulgaria addressed the audience for the occasion. The 2018 Right to Know Day Awards Jury selected the winners in six categories out of 35 nominations.
The AIP will hold the 16th Right to Know Day Awards Ceremony in Bulgaria on September 28 to present the “Golden Key” awards to citizens, journalists, and NGOs, who have actively exercised their right of access to information and public authorities with good transparency practices. Institutions with bad transparency practices receive the “Padlock” anti-award, while absurd practices are recognized with the “Tied Key” anti-award.  35 nominees are competing in the six categories. The media outreach has been escalating. 
The Access to Information Programme launches the visualization of data on the implementation of the Access to Public Information Act updated on the base of the data published in the Government reports “The State of the Administration” 2001 – 2017. The data was analyzed by the AIP Executive Director Gergana Jouleva and the visualization is possible due to the assistance of an expert from the platform Tableau.
