Any journalist that works in or is from any of the 47 countries of the Council of Europe is eligible to compete in the European Press Prize.
The articles can be in any language, but accompanied by a synopsis in English (250 words maximum), explaining the theme of the article(s), together with an assessment of its impact and reception. If you need assistance with writing this in English, please reach out to us at info[at]europeanpressprize.com.
There are four different categories in which journalists can send in their work: Investigative Reporting, Distinguished Reporting, Opinion and Innovation. You can read more about the categories when selecting ‘categories’ in the menu above.
Each year, on October 1, a button will become available on our website that brings you to our entry form. Please submit your article here and fill in the form.
The 2021 edition of the European Press Prize is open for entries from October 1 until December 11, 2020.
