The 2011 Edition of the Anna Lindh Journalist Award was officially launched on the 6th of April during the Arab-West Media Dialogue Forum, an international event which took place at the League of Arab States Headquarters in Cairo.
This Award aims at rewarding exceptional journalistic productions, contributing to a better understanding of the diversity of cultures in the Euro-Mediterranean region as well as promoting the positive role played by journalists in providing balanced and informed coverage on cultural issues in the region.
Submitted works should tackle intercultural issues between and within Euro-Mediterranean societies, ranging from minorities, migration, integration and identity to religion and cultural traditions.
Works could have been published in printed / online media, or broadcasted on radio or television between the 1st of July 2010 and 15th of July 2011. In addition, and taking into consideration the tremendous changes taking place in Southern Mediterranean countries, a special award will be dedicated to works on the theme “Social change, Citizenship and Participation”.
The competition is open to citizens of the 43 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean. Young journalists in particular are highly encouraged to apply.
