DEADLINE: Lorenzo Natali Media Prize

Event Date: 
April 28, 2023

The Lorenzo Natali Media Prize was launched in 1992 to honour courage in journalism. The 2023 competition rewards the excellence of journalists reporting about the stories that matter on the topics of inequality, poverty eradication, sustainable development, environment, biodiversity, climate action, digital, jobs and employment, education and skills development, migration, healthcare, and peace, democracy and human rights. It was created by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), and named after Lorenzo Natali, an early champion of European development policy.

Today,  the #NataliPrize community of ground-breaking journalists working for a better world  has become a global platform to the stories giving a voice to those whose vital message is often overlooked. This community of trailblazers includes past #NataliPrize winners, past Grand Jury members as well as the strategic regional partners and ambassadors closely collaborating with the European Commission in the organization of the Prize.

The 2023 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize will be awarded in the following three categories:

  1. Grand Prize: reporting published by a media based in one of the European Union’s partner countries on development and cooperation.
  2. Europe Prize: reporting published by a media based in the European Union.
  3. Best Emerging Journalist Prize: open to journalists under 30 whose reporting was published by a media based in the European Union or in one of its partner countries on development and cooperation.

Applications are open until Apr 28. The winner in each category will receive €10,000. The winner of the Best Emerging Journalist Prize category will also be offered a work experience opportunity with a media partner.
