Evens Prize for European Journalism 2015
Under its Media Program, the Evens Foundation launched in 2013 a biennial Prize for European Journalism. It rewards journalists whose work contributes to making the European project more comprehensible and accessible for a broad audience.
The prize-winner, selected by an international jury, is Marc Peeperkorn, who has been EU correspondent for De Volkskrant, the largest quality paper in Holland, since 2008.
The Evens Encouragement Award for European Journalism, created for a talented EU journalist of up to age 35, goes to Katarzyna Zachariasz, a Polish freelancer who mainly writes for Gazeta Wyborcza and Polityka.
The Prize for European Journalism includes an award of €10,000 and the Evens Encouragement Award an award of €5,000.
Both laureates were honored at the Difference Day event on Sunday 3 May 2015 in Bozar, Brussels. The Evens Foundation was co-organizing this event with the Brussels Platform for Journalism (a joint initiative of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Université Libre de Bruxelles and Erasmushogeschool Brussel), iMinds and Bozar.
