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.
