Keynote ceremony 2018

In 2018, 25 groundbreaking, heartbreaking, innovative and inspiring projects from 19 different countries were nominated for the European Press Prize. Read the articles here.

Shortlist 2018

Five articles were chosen from the shortlist and awarded with the European Press Prize. Five projects that - in times of fake news - show that the truth is still out there, and can be found. Five 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. Read the winning articles here.
