Journalists committed to defending democracy and human rights can enter a competition.
The Lorenzo Natali Journalism Prize, sponsored by the European Commission, recognizes excellence in written, radio and broadcast journalism on the theme of development, democracy and human rights around the world.
This year's overall theme is journalism for development, particularly development cooperation issues such as youth, gender equality, health, climate change and more.
The contest has three categories: a Grand Prize, for journalists whose media headquarter is located in one of 160 partner countries of the EU; Europe Prize, for journalists whose media is in one of the countries of the European Union; and Best Emerging Journalist Prize, for journalists under 30 in any country that receives assistance from DG DEVCO and DG NEAR, as well as in the EU Member States.
Work must have been published or broadcast between March 10, 2018 and March 9, 2019.
Entries are accepted in all languages but should include a translation in English, French or Spanish if they are not written in one of these languages.
The winners in each category will receive EUR10,000 (US$11,344).
The deadline is April 14.
