Way to go, girl!

Yoani Sánchez, the polemic Cuban blogger that blogs from Cuba in her "Generación Y" (where, by the way, it's almost impossible to leave an informed comment without reading the 1111 previous left by other readers) has just received the Ortega y Gasset Journalism Award in Spain, in the digital journalism category, according to this report in El País.


She said she still does not believe it.

For those not very familiar with the topic, the award, created by the daily El País in 1984, honors the best of journalism in Spanish published anywhere in the world.

Last year, our very own Raúl Rivero won the award in the category of best labor informativa, to honor his commitment to the freedom of information.

The judges are relevant personalities from the media, and other economic, cultural and social sectors. Each category award includes a cash prize of 15,000 euros and a commemorative plaque made by artist Eduardo Chillida.
