Deadline: July 31, 2023
Applications are open for the Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for Journalism 2023. The Prize aims to recognise outstanding in-depth journalism work on topics that are relevant for the European Union (EU) as a whole or some of its Member States and contribute to the promotion of principles and values of the EU, as enshrined in the European Charter of Human Rights.
The Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for Journalism was launched on 16 October 2020 as a tribute to the Maltese anti-corruption investigative journalist and blogger who was assassinated in a car bomb attack in 2017. The Prize was endorsed by the European Parliament in October 2020, and it will be awarded on a yearly basis.
- The €20,000 annual prize will be awarded on October 2023 at the European Parliament of Strasbourg to journalists or teams of journalists based in the European Union. The winning article will be chosen by an independent jury.
- Open to individual professional journalists or teams of professional journalists of any nationality. Applications may be submitted by authors themselves or by professional media organisations and associations on their behalf.
- Entries must have been published/broadcast in print, audiovisual or online media outlets based in one of the 27 EU Member States between September 1, 2022 and July 31, 2023.
- English is the official language of the Prize. Entries may be submitted in all EU official languages. A summary in English (500 words maximum) must be provided in the submission form.
- Entries may have one or several authors. Participants must be the authors and holders of the copyright and the moral rights to their work. Applications may be submitted by authors themselves or by professional media organisations and associations on their behalf.
- Should a journalist or team of journalists wish to participate with more than one entry, they are allowed to do so. However, they must submit a separate application per entry.
- Plagiarism, which includes the unauthorised use of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own, will result in disqualification. Retrospective discovery of plagiarism will result in revocation of the awarded Prize.
