Awards Ceremony of the Megalizzi-Niedzielski prize for aspiring journalists

The Megalizzi-Niedzielski prize honours the memory of Antonio Megalizzi and Bartek Piotr Orent-Niedzielski, young European journalists with a strong attachment to the EU and its values, who passed away after a terrorist attack in Strasbourg in late 2018. The prize aims to reward and encourage promising journalists who share Antonio and Bartek's enthusiasm for the European project.
