MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The RT TV channel on Wednesday announced extending the submission period for its annual Khaled Alkhateb International Memorial Awards given to the best coverages from conflict zones.

"RT extends the deadline for entries for the 2020 Khaled Alkhateb Memorial Awards, an annual international competition that recognises the best journalism from conflict zones, until June 30. The competition, now in its third year, was established in honour of RT Arabic freelancer, Khaled Alkhateb, who died reporting from the frontlines in Syria", the channel said.

Submissions are accepted internationally in three categories: best written journalism, best video journalism in long form and best video journalism in short form. The winners will be declared on 30 July, the date of Alkhateb's killing.

The competition was established to honour the memory of Khaled Alkhateb, 25, a journalist who worked for RT Arabic as a freelance correspondent before being killed in shelling by terrorists in the Syrian province of Homs in 2017.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed in April 2018 the executive order on awarding him with a medal for courage posthumously.
