European commission International Cooperation and Development - DG DEVCO. The Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) is responsible for designing European international cooperation and development policy and delivering aid throughout the world. Lorenzo Natali’s name is synonymous with the Prize that bears his name, which is awarded to media professionals who defend the freedom of expression, democracy, human rights and development. The Prize has become an integral part of the European Commission’s development policy for more than 20 years. Natali played an important role in the EU membership negotiations with Greece and helped launch the accession process with Spain and Portugal. He also helped enact key measures to combat pollution and improve living conditions across Europe.
About The Event:
The Lorenzo Natali Media Prize was launched in 1992 to recognise excellence in reporting on development issues, inequality, human rights, and poverty eradication. It was created by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), and named after Lorenzo Natali, an early champion of European development policy. Today, the Lorenzo Natali Media Prize’s community of past winners, jury members and partners have created a platform supporting reporting on development. The Prize also gives a voice to those whose vital message is often overlooked or ignored. The Prize is organised by the European Commission in close collaboration with strategic regional partners and ambassadors.
The overarching theme of the 2019 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize is journalism for development. Entries to this year’s competition should relate to to development cooperation issues such as, but not limited to, youth, gender equality, health, climate change, etc. The European Union and its member states jointly provide over half of all official global development aid, making it the world’s leading donor. The New European Consensus on Development aligns the EU with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 2019 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize will be awarded in the following three categories:
- Grand Prize: open to journalists whose media headquarter is located in one of the more than 160 partner countries* with which the European Union engages on development and cooperation.
