The CIVIS Media Prize was schedule to be awarded in the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin on the evening of 5 May 2020. In view of the corona pandemic and the fact that it is unclear how the situation will develop we unfortunately cannot keep this date. Of course Europe’s most important media prize for integration and cultural diversity in Europe will be awarded in 2020 – only in autumn and possibly in a different but no less exciting format.
Like every year, we have once again received numerous outstanding contributions. They deal with issues such as fleeing to Europe, racism and anti-Semitism in incredibly varied and creative ways. But they also address strategies against hatred and violence and for the peaceful coexistence of many people of different origins and backgrounds. We will announce which of the more than 900 submitted entries from 22 EU countries and Switzerland are nominated shortly before the award ceremony.
We will inform you about the exact date of the ceremony in the coming months.
