Initiated by APA – Austria Press Agency and UniCredit Bank Austria, and worth EUR 5,000, the award aims to encourage closer ties between countries and make a contribution to overcoming prejudice. The pieces should reflect on life in Europe and the countries of Europe and on the hopes, cares and dreams of Europe’s people.

In 2011, the prize went to the Slovene journalist and photographer Meta Krese for her reporting on the living conditions of the Roma minority in her home country.
