Exceptional stories from Eastern Europe
In 2015 for the ninth time, the Network for East European Reporting is recognizing journalists who report on exceptional stories from Eastern Europe, in a lively, differentiated and cliché-free manner. The awards are given to outstanding reportages in both content and form, from countries in middle, east and south-eastern Europe, that appeared in German-speaking media during 2014. There is one prize for each of the three categories – text, radio and photo – amounting to 2000 euros in each case.
