Next stop Gdańsk!


The 30th anniversary of PRIX EUROPA is accompanied by series of Master Class workshops in five countries across Europe. In Poland, the leading issue of the Master Class is investigative journalism on Friday 10 June, 2016.

Showing the work of laureates of PRIX EUROPA from recent years should ignite discussion on condition of public service journalism in Poland as well as in whole Europe. It will also be a great opportunity to learn from each other. We welcome you in Gdańsk – the city where “Solidarity” was born, where work of courageous reporters let the world hear the sound of Polish freedom!

Susanne Hoffmann, Director of PRIX EUROPA
Maciej Stanecki, Member of the Management Board, TVP S.A.
