€5,000 Euro-Med Journalist Prize for Cultural Dialogue

Journalists from any of the 37 countries making up the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership still have 50 days in which to submit an article to be considered for the second €5,000 Euro-Med Journalist Prize for Cultural Dialogue awarded by the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures (ALF) and the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ).

The prize aims to encourage journalism that contributes effectively to a dialogue between cultures and people by spreading awareness of diversity and tolerance. The competition is open to all journalists who are nationals of one of the 37 Euro-Mediterranean countries. Four winners - two from EU member states and two from Mediterranean partner countries – will be selected by a jury of renowned journalists and intellectuals under the presidency of the Anna Lindh Foundation. Each of the winners will receive a special trophy and a cash award of €5,000.

To participate, journalists must submit an article or a series of articles on the theme of cultural dialogue. Eligible articles must have been published in print in one of the Euro-Med countries between 1 May 2007 and the final deadline for participation: 31 October 2007.

The winners of the first Euro-Med Journalist Prize for Cultural Dialogue were Annalisa Monfreda (Italy) for her article “The Free song of the Arberesh”, Hugues Dorzée (Belgium) for his series of articles “Ataturk’s Turkey: the Holy Republic”, Mahitab Abdel Raouf (Egypt) for her article “The Undesired”, and Yoav Stern (Israel) for his article “All in the Family in Umm al-Fahm”. They subsequently spent 10 days on a reporting tour of four Euro-Mediterranean countries - Morocco, Turkey, Denmark and England - where they met with high-level decision-makers and representatives of NGOs and reported on ethnic minorities in those countries.

The Anna Lindh Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures is jointly financed by all 37 members of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership. Its main objective is to bring people and organisations from both shores of the Mediterranean closer together and to help bridge the gap between them. Particular significance is given to youth and the development of human resources. The Foundation also acts as a network of 37 national networks established by the Euro-Mediterranean partners.
