The Distinguished Reporting Award: for exceptional reporting, telling a story in the best possible way
The Public Discourse Award: for a remarkable textual interpretation of the world we live in
The Innovation Award: for challenging the current boundaries of journalism by finding new ways to engage with audiences
Journalists from all 47 countries of Europe as defined by the Council of Europe and Belarus are eligible to enter their work. Journalists working in Europe and journalists writing for a European media organisation or blog can submit their work.
