Before you enter
European Press Prize 2018
Before sending in your work, please read this information carefully. If you have any questions after this, visit the FAQ or send an email to info [at] europeanpressprize.com.
If your project is considered for the shortlist we will contact you to provide any missing information including all information about the supporting editor, publisher or assessor. You can read more about the procedure of the European Press Prize at timetable and procedure.
Who can enter?
Journalists working in Europe and journalists writing for a European media organisation or blog can submit their work. The work submitted must have been published between December 1 2016 and December 31 2017.
Number of articles
There are no absolute limits to the length or number of pieces that can be accepted by the preparatory committee; but, in general, no article or articles should exceed a maximum of 5000 words in all. Going beyond that puts a heavy strain on translation resources.
Language of the article
Entries can be accepted in the language of their original publication. They will be assessed there by the preparatory committee, with entries of particular merit chosen for translation into English, the working language of the final judging panel. Entrants who wish to have their pieces translated into English before submitting them are welcome.
A short description about the type of project and its subject.
