1. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Asia Foundation in Indonesia, it will PRESENT its awards to eight Indonesian figures for their major contributions to reform movement in Indonesia in various fields.

2. The majority of the titles in the media reporting were about the PRESENTATION of the awards to 8 Indonesian people in 6 categories.

3. To make it easier for the press to get a description of the award-PRESENTATION ceremony, beside the press release there are also included, in this press kit, supporting information such as:

agree  Elizabeth Lyons: Yes, that is the distinction and, for the heck of it, in #2, better phrasing would be: The majority of the titles in the media reporting were about PRESENTING awards to 8 Indonesian people in 6 categories.
