Applications call for European Press Prize 2021 for Excellence in Journalism. 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.
The European Press Prize will welcome entries from October 1, every year. The entry deadline is mid-December. After the entry deadline, our Preparatory Committee will start sifting through entries – ordering translations, consulting observers from journalism university departments, foreign-based correspondents and trusted observers in order to reduce the number of entries to no more than six in each category. The shortlist they select, is being published under ‘Stories’ on the website.
Candidates must not submit articles that are longer than 5,000 words. Articles beyond that limit put a heavy strain on the translation resources and judging committees. So candidates must submit only one article per person for the categories: Investigative Reporting, Distinguished Reporting and Innovation Award. For the Opinion Award, you can enter three pieces per person. If your work is part of a series, you are welcome to mention this in the entry form.
