In the Photo Reportage category, the jury nominated Niels Ackermann ('Julia, or A Ukraine Adolescence', published in Das Magazin on 16.05.2015), Emile Ducke ('Transnistria', FOG Magazine, 20.06.15) and Pepa Hristova ('The Bartered Bride', a.o. published under the title 'Brautschau' in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, 17.10.2015).
With the n-ost Reportage Prize, the Network for Reporting on Eastern Europe will for the tenth time honour journalists whose work conveys extraordinary in-depth stories from Eastern Europe – vibrant and beyond familiar cliches.

This year's winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday, 23 June 2016. The evening event at the Green Salon of the Volksbühne Berlin includes readings of the nominated text reportages to the assembled guests, along with excerpts from the shortlisted radio features and a presentation of the selected photo-series.
