DEADLINE: Lorenzo Natali Media Prize

Event Date: 
March 9, 2018

Through this prize the European Commission recognises the dedication of journalists whose work helps to create a better world.

The Lorenzo Natali Media Prize will acknowledge outstanding reporting on development issues for online, print or audio-visual works.

It will reward reporting on issues such as poverty eradication, and the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, as outlined in the new European Consensus for Development.

The prize has two categories based on age: 21 to 26 years old, and 27 years plus. For each category there will be a winner from each region: Africa; the Arab World and the Middle East; Asia and the Pacific; Latin America and the Caribbean; and Europe.

A "Grand Winner" will be selected from among the regional winners, and an additional thematic prize will be awarded for work focused on the elimination of violence against women and girls.

Winners will receive trophies and cash prizes of EUR5,000 (US$6,120). The grand prize winner will receive an additional EUR5,000 during an award ceremony in June in Brussels.

Journalists are invited to submit their work in any format, i.e. published online, print, radio or TV broadcast. Applications are open from 5 February to 9 March, 2018.
