As part of its Presidency of the International Association of Press Clubs 2018-2020, the Press Club Brussels Europe launches the “Journalism Award Series”. While international relations might be complex at times, this initiative highlights the constructive attitudes between Europe and other countries or regional entities.
The idea behind these Journalism Awards is to offer support and encouragement to journalists who often have to work in difficult and precarious conditions. These awards want to encourage journalists who produce quality work and defend the truth, even when their profession is under threat.
Journalists working for European news media can apply. Entries may be submitted by either the journalists or their employers. Eligibles are articles published online, in newspapers or in magazines. Entries accepted are single articles or a series of related articles that will be judged as a unit. When specified, the awards are also open to broadcast media including broadcast TV and radio.
What we expect:
The criteria will have to respect the basic principles of an objective reportage: fact-checking, precision in reporting quotes and figures, interest in human-based stories which could highlight the importance of understanding between human beings beyond all sorts of borders, real or psychological.
Please submit your work in one of these languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian.
