Press Releases 

Today, Tuesday 22 June at 14:00, the website for submitting entries to the Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for Journalism will be officially launched at the Press Club Brussels Europe.

Matthew Caruana Galizia, one of Daphne Caruana’s sons, David Casa, Quaestor and Member of the European Parliament, as well as Heidi Hautala and Othmar Karas, Vice-Presidents and Members of the European Parliament, will participate in the session.

The Prize, with the support of the European Parliament, is a tribute to the Maltese investigative journalist and blogger who was assassinated in October 2017. It will reward on a yearly basis outstanding journalism promoting or defending the core principles and values of the European Union, such as human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, rule of law and human rights.

The Prize is open to professional journalists and teams of professional journalists of any nationality to submit in-depth stories that have been published or broadcast by a media outlet based in one of the 27 European Union member states.

The winning entry will be selected by an independent jury composed of representatives of the press and civil society from the 27 EU countries, as well as representatives of the main European journalism associations.

The Prize itself, and the €20 000 prize money, demonstrate the European Parliament’s strong support for investigative journalism and the protection of journalists around the world.

The event is taking place on Tuesday 22 June 2021 at 14.00 CET, at the Press Club Brussels Europe, Rue Froissart 95 - 1040 Brussels
