Is that time of year again!
“The European Year (EY) Journalist Award 2010 has been created by the European Commission in order to support and recognise journalists who contribute to an increased awareness and a broader understanding of poverty and social exclusion through their work.
The competition is open to print, online, and audiovisual journalists who have articles published or news reports aired that cover the issues of poverty and social exclusion in the European Union.
