Lorenzo Natali Prize for journalism
A Prize for journalists reporting on human Rights and Democracy

The Natali Prize for journalism is a prize for excellence in reporting on human rights and democracy in the developing world. It was created in 1992 by the European Union to promote quality in journalism and to commemorate the devotion of Lorenzo Natali, the former Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of development cooperation between 1985 and 1989. His work and commitment contributed significantly to increase the importance of development cooperation within the policies of the then European Communities.

The Natali Prize emphasizes that the right to information is a prerequisite for freedom of expression. Freedom of information is a prerequisite for democracy, and for sustainable and balanced social and economic development.

Quality journalism plays an important part in defending the right for information. Being a journalist today remains difficult and also dangerous in many countries. Journalists are still threatened and attacked when they expose situations where human rights and democracy are threatened. Therefore, quality journalism on such issues is essential and needs our firm support.

The Natali Prize, given by the European Commission is a token of our belief in good journalist practice as a guardian of democracy and human rights. The winners of the Natali Prize will give proof of their professional courage and skills.

Through the Natali Prize, all participating journalists will have the opportunity to contribute to our belief in the importance of freedom of information for the safeguard of human rights and the promotion of democracy and sustainable development.
