Outline policy

Good journalism is one of the hallmarks of civilized society. Independent and critical journalists are the guardians of democracy. With yearly awards, the European Press Prize aims to be the brand for quality journalism in Europe. By rewarding, facilitating and educating journalists, the European Press Prize highlights the importance of quality media and supports journalists in their endeavour to contribute to independent and critical journalism. Our key missions are aligning journalists and creating a community that recognises and strives for quality – one that helps each other fight foes too big for one person or organisation, as well as playing a defining role in emphasising the vital importance of fine reporting, shrewd analysis and outspoken comment.
