The Call is divided into two categories: “Professional journalists” (4.000 EUR) and “Young professional journalists” (1.000 EUR).
The Award aims at honouring the work carried out by investigative journalists and their contribution to investigative reporting despite the difficult conditions under which they often have to operate. Since its establishment in 2008, the CEI SEEMO Award has contributed to promoting quality investigative reporting in Central, Eastern and South-eastern Europe, providing recognition and visibility to the work of remarkable journalists from the region.
The Call is open to nationals of the 18 CEI Member States: Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
The winners will be awarded during the South East Europe Media Forum (SEEMF) taking place in Belgrade on 21-22 November 2016.
