We are very proud to present to you the 2018 winners of the European Press Prize. 5 projects that - in times of fake news - show that the truth is still out there, and can be found. 5 projects that highlight all aspects of what journalism should be about: risking everything to get the story, local investigations, classic watergate fact-finding, dangerous opinions and unearthing a truth we did not know yet.2018 Winners
