EU-funded journalism competition to recognise Euro-Mediterranean migration reporters
The inaugural Migration Media Awards will recognise the work of 35 journalists from 16 countries who had reported on the migration to the Euro-Mediterranean region. The entries were selected based on the objective and information-based reporting of the challenges and opportunities of such a complex subject.
The international jury consisted of senior journalists and evaluated more than 120 English, French, and Arabic entries that were submitted in the video, print, online, and radio categories. The Migration Media Awards is funded by the European Union and was developed in collaboration with EUROMED Migration IV, OPEN Media Hub projects, the European Asylum Support Office, and Malta's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The first, second, and third prize winners will be awarded at a special award ceremony that will be held in Valletta, Malta on 14 June 2017.
