Journalism Excellence Awards – Ethical reporting on Roma and fight against racism and antigypsyism through the media

The Awards aim to promote a positive image of Roma and marginalised communities in the media, especially with regard to women and children. It contributes directly to the European objectives of promoting stereotype-free image and positive examples in order to drive a change in people’s perception.

Five categories will be evaluated and awarded a prize of €2000 at the Awards ceremony to be held in Strasbourg on 18 June 2024:

  • Photojournalism Award

  • Interview Award
  • Global event Award
