International awards contribute to raising awareness of the importance of journalism and of the risks that this profession presents. The latest, important, example of this is the Nobel Peace Prize assigned to Ressa and Muratov for their work in the Philippines and Russia, spreading quality information and countering the actions of their governments.
But can awards be more than this? And in what measure can they contribute to making the journalistic profession safer and enhancing the reach of quality journalism?
The European Press Prize hosts a discussion panel with international-level speakers on the role of awards in the journalism landscape, to talk about their importance, and at the same time try to understand if and where they fall short, to find space for improvement. The aim is to gather feedback from the attendees, generate ideas, and explain how the European Press Prize works on building a community of journalists that can rely on international awards to do their job better.
Organised in association with European Press Prize.
