The Europe & Me Young Journalist Award

The Europe & Me Young Journalist Award is giving young people the chance to win cash prize, online publication, and an invitation to a journalism workshop in Berlin or Hamburg for writing about Europe in a fresh, personal and transnational way.


Who can apply:

Young journalists under 30 years old, from the European Union, partner and neighbouring countries, who are not professionally employed as journalists.



They will have to write journalistic articles of 1500–2000 words, on any European topic as long as it’s approached transnationally (in a way that makes it directly relevant to at least two European countries).


Possible topics could be:

1. Migration reversed – will the young generation leave Europe behind?

2. Erasmus Love – how transnational dating makes Europe a better place!

3. Generation internship – is Europe throwing away its potential?

4. How the EU became the ECB-U, the ESM-U and the EMF-U – and what this means for European democracy.

5. Yugoslavia, k. &. k., & Co. reloaded – what can Europe learn from multiethnic realms in the past?

6. Srebrenica, Sirte, Ghuta – why there is no such thing as a European foreign policy, and why there should be.

7. Growing up in the countryside – is Europe good for everybody?



The first prize entry will be awarded €500, two runners-up will receive €150 each. All three finalists will be invited to a journalism workshop scheduled to be held in Berlin or Hamburg, 2014. All shortlisted articles will be published online in a special edition of E&M magazine.



Interested entrants will have to submit a brief CV to by 25 November 2013 (midnight, CET).
