We are currently expanding the preparatory committee (PrepCom) and reviewing its structure and the judging procedure. We will update this page with all new PrepCom members soon!
The European Press Prize’s preparatory committee (PrepCom) – consists of members from different European countries, speaking a multitude of languages. The PrepCom is in charge of selecting the shortlist for each category; a daunting task. Hundreds of pieces and projects come in – in all shapes and sizes – written in all possible European languages and on every conceivable subject. The PrepCom reads and re-reads, compares the incompatible, and selects a number of projects to translate or investigate. All in order to narrow it down to a short selection of entries that is to be submitted to the judges.
