The Anna Lindh Mediterranean Journalist Award 2011

About the Award
Journalists today are facing the challenge of reporting on the rapid transformation taking place across our region from once mainly homogenous societies to vibrant multi-cultural and multi-religious communities. It is in this context that the Anna Lindh Mediterranean Journalist Award was launched in 2006 by the Anna Lindh Foundation to promote and recognize the positive role played by journalists in reporting on issues of cultural diversity and providing balanced and informed coverage beyond the headline of “clash” of civilizations.

This leading regional 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”
