The 10th edition of the Mediterranean Journalists Awards of the Anna Lindh Foundation will reward productions tackling intercultural issues between and within Euro-Mediterranean societies, ranging from diversity, tolerance, freedom of expression, fighting xenophobia, extremism and terrorism. Special attention will be given to works focusing on the theme "Intercultural Cities and Migration", as announced on the occasion of the Anna Lindh Foundation MED FORUM.

In addition, on the occasion of the landmark 10th edition, a Special Alumni Award will be bestowed by the Anna Lindh Foundation Secretariat for outstanding contribution by a Journalist Award alumni in the promotion of intercultural dialogue.

A jury made up of eminent media professionals and outstanding intellectuals will select the winners to be awarded during a prestigious ceremony hosted at the European Parliament in Brussels at the end of the year.

Journalists and photographers of written press, television, radio and online media, and who are citizens of the 42 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean, can apply by 27 September 2017.
