During the Foreign Press Association’s (FPA), seventeenth annual FPA Media Awards ceremony in London on Tuesday, Queen Rania Al Abdulla of Jordan was the first recipient of the Humanitarian Award created by the organisation.

The FPA has been in existence for nearly 130 years. It is apolitical and independent and the only organisation of its kind in the UK. Funding is paid by membership dues; members are journalists from around the world. To receive an FPA award is a great honour as the organisation is quite prestigious in the media and journalism community.
