"For Diversity. Against Discrimination." Journalist Award 2004
Is discrimination at the workplace a major issue?
The majority of EU citizens certainly believe so, according to a
Eurobarometer survey carried out last year. In order to raise
awareness and stimulate debate on discrimination issues, the European
Union has launched the "For Diversity. Against Discrimination."
Journalist Award 2004.
Journalists in the 25 EU Member States are requested to submit
articles on the subject of combating discrimination and promoting
diversity in employment. Media professionals and antidiscrimination
experts will select 25 national award winners plus three finalists
for the EU-wide award. The EU finalists can look forward to winning a
trip to the EU country of their choice.
The competition is part of the EU "For Diversity. Against
Discrimination." information campaign, which provides information
about European anti-discrimination policies, including in particular
on workplace discrimination. To be eligible for the award, articles
must be published in print or online media between 1 January to 30
September 2004. Articles may be submitted in all official EU
languages. The entries will be assessed according to their news
value, relevance, complexity of research and preparation,
originality, creativity and quality of the article, as well as their
significance and interest for the general public.
The articles should be at least 5000 characters in length and be
submitted at the latest by 5 October 2004.
For more details on the award scheme and for application forms
please see www.stop-discrimination.info.
