Apply for European Press Prize 2021
To help counter the effects of these transformations was one of the reasons the European Press Prize was envisioned.
Formed by seven independent European foundations with strong media connections, all of which count excellence and public service as part of their collective challenge.
The aim of the foundation is to salute and encourage journalism of the highest quality for building a better world.
There are four awards – worth 10,000 euros each. The judges are also empowered to award a special prize for particular excellence. The nominated works will be published on the website of the European Press Prize. The four awards are as follows:
The Investigative Reporting Award – for the individual or team effort which has done most to unearth facts that the public and society has a right to know.
The Distinguished Reporting Award – for the best reportage and feature writing illuminating vital issues at home and abroad.
The Opinion Award – for the commentator, columnist or editor whose work has made a decisive impact.
The Innovation Award – for the idea – presentational, technical or in terms of editorial techniques that has made a clear contribution to journalism’s future.
The deadline is on 2 December 2020.
Journalists from all 47 countries of Europe as defined by the Council of Europe are eligible to enter their work.
Journalists working in Europe and journalists writing for a European media organisation or blog can submit their work.
The work submitted must have a publication date between December 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020.
