Christiaan Triebert, alumnus of the Faculty of Arts, has won the European Press Innovation Award for his coverage of the 2016 Turkish coup d'état attempt. Triebert reconstructed the attempted coup in Turkey based on WhatsApp conversations.

He received the award last Thursday during an event at De Balie in Amsterdam. In addition to the Innovation Award, prizes for Investigative Reporting and Distinguished Writing were awarded to the Serbian Centre for Investigative Journalism (CINS) and three Der Spiegel journalists respectively.

Christiaan Triebert studied International Relations, Middle Eastern Studies and Political Philosophy at the University of Groningen.
