Journalists taking part in the competition can win prizes worth up to EUR 5 000.

European Prizes: The European winner, plus the two runners-up, will receive prizes with a value of EUR 5 000, EUR 3 500 and EUR 2 500 respectively.

National Prizes: The winners of each of the 27 national competitions will receive a prize with a value of EUR 1 000.
