The 2017 edition of the Lorenzo Natali Prize has been launched with the hashtag #TellMyStory. The Prize celebrates the best traditions of journalism in uncovering powerful and moving stories, giving a voice to those who often find it impossible or difficult to be heard. Submit your entry by 10th March 2017.

The Lorenzo Natali Media Prize is an opportunity for journalist from the regions of Africa; the Arab World and the Middle East; Asia and the Pacific; Latin America and the Caribbean; and Europe to demonstrate their commitment to reporting on development and poverty eradication as well as inspiring people to improve lives in their own communities.

In addition to the main themes outlined above, this year’s competition will have an extra special prize focused on reporting linked to freedom of religion or belief outside the European Union, which contributes covering inspiring stories and initiatives promoting this freedom as well as respect for religious diversity and inter-religious cooperation.

The Prize will be awarded to one amateur and one professional journalist from each of the regions. Each winner will be awarded €5 000. One amateur and one professional journalist will also receive the same prize in the special Freedom of Religion or Belief category. Submissions for the main Prize and special category will be assessed by an independent jury, which will also award an additional €5 000 Grand Prize to one of the winners.

Prize winners will receive their awards at a ceremony during the 2017 European Development Days in Brussels, Belgium this June. For more information about the Prize and the application process visit the Lorenzo Natali Media Prize website:
