Nov. 19, 2009 - PRLog -- The European Young Journalist Award (EYJA2010) urges established journalists and journalism students, between 17 and 35 years of age and citizens of one of the EU Member States, Candidate Countries, Potential Candidates and Iceland, to enlarge their vision by presenting the EU Enlargement from a creative and thought-provoking perspective. Print, online and radio articles published between 1 October 2007 and 28 February 2010, are eligible and may be submitted until 28 February 2010.

A panel of judges in each of the 36 participating countries will select the respective national winner. Furthermore, an international jury will award three special prizes, one for the “Most original” submission, one for the “Best research” and another one for the “Best journalistic style.” Each of the three Special Prize winners will receive a cultural trip to a European capital of their choice.

Olli Rehn, Commissioner for Enlargement welcomed the European Young Journalist Award: “The third edition of the European Young Journalist Award continues to reward excellent journalism and gives the European Commission the opportunity to exchange ideas with Europe’s most promising young journalists about matters that are at the core of the EU Enlargement project.”

The winners of the European Young Journalist Award will visit Istanbul in May 2010 for a cultural and historical trip. Istanbul, one of Europe’s Capitals of Culture for 2010, provides an ideal location for the winners to enlarge their vision through cross-cultural interaction. The trip will end with a conference where views about European culture, identity and EU Enlargement will be exchanged with leading international analysts.
