European Press Prize
I get new Press Prize projects off the ground. This includes the annual Award Ceremony, that takes place in a different European city in collaboration with a different partner each year. This year the ceremony will take place at Gazeta Wyborcza in Warsaw, on May 23rd.

Being half Turkish, I hope to establish a strong European Press Prize presence in Turkey to make sure quality journalism in that region receives the stage it deserves. Eastern European countries are also part of my focus for that matter; I research how we can be more inclusive and reach all countries, organisations, and journalists that deserve recognition.
