The European Commission launched in March the second EU health prize for journalists in print and on-line articles. The prize is part of the 'Europe for Patients' campaign launched in September 2008. It aims to stimulate and reward high-quality journalism that raises awareness of healthcare and patients' rights issues.
This year's prize follows on from the first health prize for journalists which attracted over 460 articles from journalists from all across the European Union.

Journalists, you are invited to submit articles published in print or on-line publications between 16 June 2009 and 18 July 2010 using an on-line entry form.The winners will receive cash prizes of 5.000 € for first place, 3.000 € for second and 2.000 € for third. All national finalists will be invited to Brussels in autumn 2010 to participate in a media seminar on EU health issues.

In each EU country, one national finalist will be selected by a jury composed of journalists and public health experts, chaired by the European Commission. An EU jury will then select three EU level winners among the 27 finalists. Once the names of the national and EU jury members are confirmed, they will be made available on the Journalist Prize website.
