Award ceremony for EU Investigative Journalism Awards in Montenegro is postponed until the fall. The decision was brought with the consent of the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro, due to COVID-19. Numerous applications have been submitted so far and all of these applications will be evaluated by an independent international jury. Because of the situation with COVID-19, in the fall another chance will be given to all journalists who have not applied so far for achievements published in 2019. The public will be duly informed on the additional Call.

The awards are a continuation of the ongoing regional EU Investigative Journalism Award in the Western Balkans and Turkey and part of the ongoing project ‘Strengthening Quality News and Independent Journalism in the Western Balkans and Turkey’, provided with the financial support of the European Union. EU Investigative Journalism Awards in the Western Balkans and Turkey aim to celebrate and promote the outstanding achievements of investigative journalists as well as improve the visibility of quality journalism in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The first prize will be 5,000 EUR, the second 3,000 EUR, and the third will be 2,000 EUR. Within the same project, last year EU Investigative Journalism Awards were granted for investigations published in 2018. Next year, the Call for journalistic achievements for 2020 is planned to be publish.
