The Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for Journalism was created on 16 October 2020 in honour of Maltese investigative journalist and blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia, who campaigned against corruption and was murdered by a car bomb in 2017.
The prize, sponsored by the European Parliament, is awarded annually for work by journalists from the European Union and aims to reward outstanding and informed journalistic work on issues that promote and defend the EU’s fundamental values.
This year’s applications are open until 1 September 2021.
The prize is worth 20,000 euros and is open to all professional journalists and journalism teams. Nationality is not a factor. Journalistic contributions that have been published or broadcast by media in one of the 27 EU Member States can be submitted.
The award ceremony will take place in mid-October around the anniversary of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia on 16 October.
