With the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, the European Parliament inaugurated the fifth edition of the Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for Journalism. This annual award commemorates the Maltese investigative journalist, murdered in 2017 for her courageous anti-corruption reporting. Instituted by the European Parliament's Bureau in 2019, the prize honors outstanding journalism that champions the core values of the European Union, such as human rights, dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights.

The competition welcomes submissions from professional journalists or teams, regardless of nationality, who have produced substantial investigative work published or broadcasted by media outlets within any of the 27 EU member states.

An impartial jury, comprising members from European journalists’ associations, along with representatives from the press and civil society, will adjudicate the prize. Additionally, a €20,000 monetary award underscores the European Parliament's commitment to nurturing investigative journalism. The laureate will be revealed during the commemoration of the tragic loss of Daphne Caruana Galizia on October 16, 2024.

The deadline to apply for the award is July 31, 2024 at 12 PM (CET).
