Anadolu Agency’s Green Line receives award from Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies

The Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) on Wednesday presented its 2020-2021 Excellence in News Agency Quality Award to Anadolu Agency’s Green Line, an editorial unit to raise awareness about climate change and environmental issues.
The three-day 18th OANA General Assembly was held in the Iranian capital Tehran.
Hyeonjun Kim, chairperson of South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, presented the award to Anadolu Agency’s Environment Editor Hale Aydogmus.
Oguz Karakas, the Turkish news agency’s project management coordinator, said Anadolu Agency will host the OANA Board of Directors Meeting in 2023.
After voting, Iran’s official news agency IRNA took over the OANA presidency for the next three years. The next general assembly will be held in the Russian capital Moscow in 2025.
OANA was founded in 1961 on the initiative of UNESCO to ensure a free and direct exchange of news in the Asia-Pacific region, which is home to almost two-thirds of the world’s population. News agencies of 43 countries are the association’s members.
About two-thirds of the total news circulation in the world is provided by the member agencies of the union.
