Lorenzo Natali Media Prize 2019 is open for submission of entries. The Lorenzo Natali Media Prize recognises excellence in reporting on development issues, inequality, human rights, and poverty eradication. The European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) created the award, and gave the name after Lorenzo Natali, an early champion of European development policy.

This prize has created a platform supporting reporting on development. The Prize also gives a voice to those whose vital message is often overlooked or ignored. Furthermore, the European Commission is organizing this award in close collaboration with strategic regional partners and ambassadors.

Themes for Entries

The overarching theme of the 2019 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize is journalism for development. Entries to this year’s competition should relate to to development cooperation issues such as, but not limited to, youth, gender equality, health, climate change, etc.


The 2019 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize has three categories: 

  • Grand Prize: open to journalists whose media headquarter is in one of the more than 160 partner countries with which the European Union engages on development and cooperation.
  • Europe Prize: open to journalists whose media headquarter is in one of the countries of the European Union.
  • Best Emerging Journalist Prize: open to journalists under 30 whose media has headquarter in any country where DG DEVCO and DG NEAR provide development assistance, as well as in the EU Member States.

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 with a media partner.

Winning journalists will receive their award at the Lorenzo Natali Award Ceremony at the 2019 European Development Days, which take place in Brussels on June 18-19, 2019.
