Language of the article? Please submit your article in the language of the original publication. Articles selected for the longlist will be translated into English. If you have an English translation or wish to arrange your own translation, feel free to do so. Please submit this translation with your application. If you do not have an English translation, you can enter your work in the original language of the publication.
Different types of journalism? Text should be the predominant part of your entry. Our current judging procedure is set up to judge written journalism (with supporting material). Unfortunately, this means that at this time we are not equipped to judge podcasts, documentaries, movies, TV broadcasts, and other types of journalism that do not have a core of written journalism.
Deadline? The 2022 edition of the European Press Prize is open for entries until December 10, 2021.
Timetable? The European Press Prize has announced its winners and runners-up for the 2021 edition on June 3, 2021. The 2021 shortlist has been announced in April, 2021. The 2022 edition will open for entries from October 1 until December 10, 2021.
Rules? Articles can be a maximum of 5,000 words in all. Going beyond that puts a heavy strain on translation resources. For authors submitting articles for the Investigative Reporting Award, Distinguished Reporting Award, and Innovation Award, only one article may be submitted per author. For the Public Discourse Award, up to three articles may be submitted per author. For all rules read here.
Categories? The European Press Prize is awarded in four different categories. Each award is for 10,000 euros, to be spent wherever possible on a personal project that may, in turn, enrich the practice of journalism. The judges are also empowered to award a special prize for particular excellence. The nominated works will be published on the website of the European Press Prize: read here.
