Valletta, 14 June 2017
The first edition of the Migration Media Award - an EU-funded journalism competition of which COPEAM is an associated partner - will reward 35 journalists from 16 countries for their journalistic excellence in reporting on migration in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The winning entries feature fact-based and impartial reporting on the complexity of migration, its many challenges and opportunities.
An international jury, composed of reputable senior journalists, evaluated over 120 applications - in English, French or Arabic - for the four categories of video, print, online and radio. The twelve first-prize winners come from Algeria, Egypt, France, Italy, Morocco, Portugal and the UK. A total of thirty-five 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners will be announced during an awarding ceremony to be held on the 14th June in Valletta, Malta, under the auspices of Malta’s EU Presidency.
