The Copyright Agency Hosts Press Freedom Raffle in 2013

Whether you’re a journalist yourself or you simply support people’s right to the freedom of the press, protecting the right to report on events without being harassed or intimidated is of the utmost importance. Everyone who values the freedom of the press has an obligation to help defend those who do report, and thus, may face threats or danger.

The Copyright Agency is helping to support press freedom specifically in the Asia-Pacific region by hosting a unique raffle.

The Press Freedom 2013 raffle is not only for a great cause that affects people everywhere, it also gives you the chance to win some incredible prizes. We couldn’t think of a better reason to donate.

Where Does the Money Go?

Every dollar raised in the Press Freedom raffle will go to the Media Safety and Solidarity Fund. This important fund supports journalists and their families who are working in the Asia-Pacific region in the face of war, hardship, and other emergencies.

Supported by the donations of Australian journalists and others in the media industry, the fund was established in 2005, and is the result of a strong inter-regional collaboration.

Over the last few months, the Copyright Agency encouraged anyone who supports press freedom to help them by selling raffle tickets.

The prize-winners of the raffle will be announced at the 2013 Australian Press Freedom Media Dinner, which takes place at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf in Sydney on 3 May.

The Right to Win

Three top-notch prizes will be awarded to three very lucky winners of the raffle.

  • Grand Prize: Enjoy an escape to paradise with two nights’ stay in a pool villa at the Orient-Express Jimbaran Puri Bali. And if that’s not enough for you, the prize also includes two nights in a villa at Ubud Hanging Gardens. Breakfast and return airfare included.
  •  2nd Prize: Become an amateur photographer or add to your gear with the Nikon V2, the latest addition to the Nikon 1 advanced series that includes interchangeable lenses. With superior optical technologies, the camera comes with a 10-30mm VR f3.5 – 5.6 lens.
  • 3rd Prize: Relax and kick back for a weekend at Sydney’s brand new heritage-listed 1888 hotel. Packages comes with breakfast and dinner voucher (estimated $250 value) for the renowned Bridge Room restaurant.

If the feeling of supporting a noble cause doesn’t get you, fabulous prizes like those listed above are more than enough reason to donate by buying a raffle ticket.
