IFJ LAUNCHES EUROPEAN JOURNALISM PRIZE

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has launched what it calls the first European reporting award organised and judged entirely by journalists.

The Europe Prize: Journalism for a Changing World recognises journalists whose reporting fosters greater understanding and awareness of Europe's contribution to international policies on social, environmental and economic issues. The award is an initiative of the IFJ, the European Journalism Centre, Belgium's Résidence Palace International Press Centre and several leading European newspapers.

The 2003 prize will focus on drug-policy in Europe and recognise three journalists whose reports promote better understanding about drug-control policies and the role Europe plays in defining international standards.

The prize is open to print and on-line journalists employed by media in the member states of the Council of Europe. The winner of the award will receive a cash prize of 8,000 Euros (US$8,730) while two runners-up will each receive 1,000 Euros (US$1,100).

The deadline for entries is 31 July. For application forms and full details, see
