The participants went through three stages of evaluation: two initial rounds, with selection made by 27 judges, and a final round in which 12 judges in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia choose the finalists and winners.

Among those selected are journalists and newsroom teams from 13 Ibero-American countries. From this group, the three finalists of each category will be announced in the next few days. Each of the 12 chosen will receive 6 million Colombian pesos (about US $2,000) and participate in the Marathon of the Best Stories of Ibero-America at the Gabo Festival.

The four winners will be announced at a festival ceremony on Sept. 29, at the Botanic Garden of Medellín. They will also receive 33 million Colombian pesos (about US $11,000).

In July, FNPI announced that Mexican-American journalist Jorge Ramos was the winner of the 2017 Recognition of Excellence as part of the GGM Journalism Award. Ramos is the main anchor of the U.S. Spanish-language news network Univision.

The Gabriel García Márquez Foundation for New Iberian-American Journalism (FNPI) created the awards and the festival of the same name in 2013. Inspired by the ideals of the Colombian journalist and writer, the objective of the award is "to encourage the pursuit of excellence, innovation, rigor in the treatment of facts and ethical coherence in journalism," according to the website.
