Founded in 2006 in partnership with the International Federation of Journalists, this leading regional Award aims at rewarding exceptional journalistic productions, contributing to a better understanding of the diversity of cultures in the Euro-Mediterranean region as well as promoting the positive role played by media in reporting on issues of cultural diversity and providing balanced and informed coverage in the region.
The Award is promoted each year through an open competition across the Mediterranean region. A prestigious international jury of media experts preselects the finalists who are then invited to attend the Award Ceremony where the winners are announced.
Following the 2016 Award Ceremony held in Jordan, in February, the winning journalists were interviewed by the ALF press team. - See more here.
