Every year, 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.

Since 2013, European Press Prize ceremonies have been held in Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and London.

2021 Online Winner Announcement

2020 Drumscroll

The winners of the 2020 European Press Prize were announced on June 11 with an interactive online announcement: the Drumscroll. Given current COVID-19 circumstances, the planned Ceremony in Berlin, where our laureates and the selected winners were to be honoured, could not take place.

To honour our mission to highlight and award the best in European journalism, we invited everyone to experience an interactive announcement of the 2020 European Press Prize – in order to celebrate our laureates as they deserve. Drumscroll allowed us to showcase the best of European journalism this past year and allows everyone to meet this year’s laureates, see where all nominated stories originated and hear what the judges have to say about them. Experience our Drumscroll here.
