Winners of the 31st edition Lorenzo Natali Media Prize


The winners of this year's edition of the Lorenzo Natali Media Prize, awarded by the European Commission, were announced at a ceremony hosted at the Solvay Library in Brussels.

The winners are:

For the International Prize:  the three journalists Carmen Victoria Inojosa, Claudia Smolansky and a third whose name cannot be disclosed for security reasons, were awarded the International Prize for their compelling article ‘Así funcionan las casas clandestinas de la Dgcim en Caracas' published in Their work exposed the harrowing reality of systematic persecution in Venezuela, targeting political opponents and their families with alarming impunity.

For the Europe Prize: Italian journalists Emanuela Barbiroglio and Stefano Valentino won with an article entitled ‘European green finance is paying for deforestation in Indonesia: the case of Michelin' published in VoxEurop. Their piece delved into the realm of sustainable development projects and green finance, shedding light on the fact that these initiatives can sometimes be deceiving.

MANAMA, Bahrain, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bahrain today unveiled its National Energy Strategy: a clear, credible, and responsible pathway to reaching the climate targets the Kingdom pledged to achieve at COP26, namely a 30 percent reduction in emissions by 2035 on the road to net-zero emissions by 2060.
