The European Union launches 2019 EU Prize for Journalism
On 2 May, the European Union launched the 2019 EU Prize for Journalism and the Special Prize
for Peace Journalism during a large-scale media conference entitled The European Media
Standards: Ethics and Responsibility.
The EU Prize was launched by Carl Hartzell, Ambassador of the European Union to Georgia and Kate Fearon, Acting Head of the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM).
"Today it is my pleasure to launch the 8th edition of what is by now one of the longest running journalism competitions here in Georgia. The European Prize for Journalism encourages professionalism and ethical conduct by awarding the best work in print, broadcast, online, and photo journalism," Ambassador Carl Hartzell said.
As for the Special Prize for Peace Journalism, Ms. Kate Fearon, Acting Head of the EUMM noted: “It is how the media informs the public that the potential for confidence building lies. We are looking for new ideas – stories told with sensitivity and with professional integrity covering conflict related issues.”
Established in 2012, the European Prize for Journalism is an annual event that encourages professionalism and ethical conduct in Georgian journalism, organised by the European Union Delegation to Georgia. The Special Prize for conflict-sensitive journalism rewards media outlets contributing to confidence building and peace and is presented by the European Union Monitoring Mission.
The 2019 EU Prize for Journalism will be awarded in 7 categories:
· Best story in print or online media;
· Best feature story in broadcast or online media;
· Best investigative story in print, online, or broadcast media;
· Best online or print blog, opinion or column in print, online or broadcast media;
· The most innovative and original piece of work in print, broadcast or online media;
· Best documentary photo reflecting EU values;
· Best conflict-sensitive journalistic work contributing to confidence-building and peace in the context of armed conflicts in Georgia, displaying high standards of journalistic ethics and professionalism (The EUMM Special Prize for Peace Journalism).
The winners of the first six categories will receive the equivalent of 1,250 Euros each in the national currency. The winner of the EUMM Special Prize for Peace Journalism will receive a one month fellowship with the Institute of War and Peace Reporting in London.
