In 1993, following a Recommendation adopted during UNESCO's General Conference (1991), May 3rd, was proclaimed as the World Press Freedom Day

It serves as an opportunity to inform citizens and share information on press freedom violations taking place every day in many different corners around the world. 

as a reminder that in dozens of countries around the world, publications are censored, fined, suspended, and closed down, while journalists, editors and publishers are harassed, attacked, detained and even murdered.
Held this year in the US following the tradition, World Press Freedom focused on themes like:
- New frontiers of news media
