On May 3, International Press Freedom Day, the European Parliament announced the opening of applications for the Daphne Caruana Galizia Journalism Award.

Annually, the Parliament honors exceptional journalism with an award that supports and upholds the core principles and fundamental values of the European Union, including human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights.

Speaker of the Parliament Roberta Metsola stated, "Journalists should have the absolute freedom to perform their duties. This is non-negotiable. In remembrance of the brave journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, the European Parliament reaffirms its commitment to media and press freedom each year. Despite Daphne's murder, her spirit endures through the efforts of journalists who, just like her, champion truth, diversity, and justice. This award is dedicated to them."

The award is accessible to all professional reporters, writers, and reporting teams, regardless of their nationality. Submissions are invited for journalistic works that have been published or broadcast by media outlets within any of the 27 member states. The purpose of the award is to highlight the critical role of professional journalism in protecting human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights.

The selection of the award winner is made by an impartial panel that includes representatives from the media and civil society across all 27 EU countries, as well as leading European journalism organizations. The award is presented annually around October 16th, the date marking the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

By awarding a prize and a monetary reward of 20,000 EUR, the European Parliament demonstrates its commitment to investigative journalism and emphasizes the importance of press freedom. For years, the Parliament has been raising alarms about attempts to undermine media diversity within the EU and globally.

Members of Parliament have consistently condemned attacks on journalists across several member states, especially those perpetrated by political figures. They urged the Commission to introduce legislation to combat frivolous lawsuits. The inaugural regulations aimed at preventing lawsuits designed to silence critical voices were approved in February 2024. Furthermore, in March, the Parliament endorsed the new European Media Freedom Act, aimed at safeguarding journalists and press freedom within the EU.

Submissions are accepted exclusively online at until the deadline of July 31, 2024, at midnight (CEST).

Who was Daphne Caruana Galizia?

Daphne Caruana Galizia was a Maltese investigative journalist, blogger, and anti-corruption activist. She extensively covered issues such as corruption, money laundering, organized crime, as well as the country's citizenship sale and the Maltese government's involvement in the Panama Papers scandal. She faced intimidation and threats for her work. On October 16, 2017, she was">killed by a car bomb. The controversy and scandal surrounding the investigation into her murder eventually led to the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. In December 2019, the European Parliament strongly criticized the investigative failures and called for action from the Commission.

In October 2023, six years following the assassination of a journalist, the legislature expressed concern over the minimal advancements made in relation to the case. Lawmakers lamented that the investigation had only resulted in three convictions to date. They reiterated their call for the legal system to bring all individuals involved in the killing to trial.
