The European Press Prize salutes and encourages the highest achievements in European journalism at the annual Award Ceremony, a festival of dialogue, collaboration and storytelling. 

In 2017, the European Press Prize celebrated 5 years of excellent journalism at the place where the European Press Prize was founded: De Balie in Amsterdam. 21 different nationalities came together to celebrate and discuss the future of journalism. Guests enjoyed an informative and interesting program with keynote speaker Gideon Rachman, a masterclass for talented journalists, two panel discussions and more. 

Previous European Press Prize ceremonies were held in Prague, Copenhagen and London.
