In addition, a special Jury award will be made for an outstanding media contribution to reporting on “rising xenophobia and radicalization” in the Euro-Mediterranean region. A jury made of eminent media professionals and outstanding intellectuals will select the 5 winners to be awarded during a prestigious awarding ceremony set to take place in London. The winners will receive a cash prize and will be invited to travel to other parts of the Euro-Med region as media ambassadors in the framework of the “Journalist Award: Exchange”.
The Anna Lindh Journalist Award was founded by the Anna Lindh Foundation in 2006, in collaboration with the International Federation of Journalists, and the Award has been expanded during the last decade through a coalition of leading partners including COPEAM, Thomson Reuters Foundation, Allianz Foundation and the UN Alliance of Civilizations.
