Journalists Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov have won the Nobel Peace Prize for their fights to defend freedom of expression in the Philippines and Russia.
The Nobel committee called the pair "representatives of all journalists who stand up for this ideal".
The editors are known for hard-hitting investigations that have angered their countries' rulers, and both have faced significant threats.
They were chosen out of 329 candidates.
Ms Ressa, who co-founded the news site Rappler, was commended for using freedom of expression to "expose abuse of power, use of violence and growing authoritarianism in her native country, the Philippines".
The award-winning journalist was convicted last year of libel in a case seen as a test of the country's press freedom.
