Writing for CEE journalism prize

18.07.2011

Submission period for authors ends on 31 July 2011

  • Prize for EUR 5,000 honours contributions, which focus on borders and prejudices within Europe in varied ways and help to overcome them
  • APA and Bank Austria calling for entries until the end of July

Writing for CEE, the international journalism prize awarded annually by APA – Austria Press Agency and Bank Austria since 2004, is approaching its final days. Journalists from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) have the opportunity to submit their work until 31 July, and the winner can look forward to a EUR 5,000 award.

The prize honours works that deal with Europe and Europeans, everyday life in the countries of Europe and European art, culture or lifestyles – and that make a contribution to breaking down barriers and overcoming prejudices. Entries must have been published in print media, on the radio, on television or on the Internet between 1 August 2010 and 31 July 2011.

The prize is aimed at encouraging the journalistic examination of Europe and European integration. Writing for CEE is not an EU prize, but “a European prize with a focus on Central and Eastern Europe”. However, journalists from all over Europe – for example, from Northern Europe or the Baltic states – are especially invited to submit their work. The winner will be announced at a gala event held in November 2011 in Vienna.

Members of the jury, which meets in various constellations, include the Czech communications expert Milan Smid, the Slovakian publicist Michael Berko, the communications advisor Ildiko Füredi-Kolarik, the Polish journalists Igor Janke and Pawel Bravo, the former advisor to the Czech president Jiri Pehe, the Hungarian radio journalist Julia Varadi, the Bulgarian author Janina Dragostinova, Bank Austria’s CEE press officer Tiemon Kiesenhofer and the chairman of the jury, APA’s editor-in-chief for foreign affairs Ambros Kindel.

The article in the original language, an English translation and the author’s curriculum vitae are required for entry. The entry form and additional information can be found at www.apa.at/cee-award

NOTE

Ukrsotsbank is one of the largest universal banks of Ukraine, operating in the local market since 1990. The bank offers full range of services to individuals and corporate clients.

The renovated Ukrsotsbank emerged on 31 October 2016 as a result of strategic deal whereby 99.9% of Ukrsotsbank shares have been transferred from UniCredit Group to ABH Holdings S.A. (АВНН) in exchange for a minority 9.9% stake in ABHH. Thus, the bank has combined 26-year-old traditions of Ukrsotsbank’s client-centric attitude, European quality of service inherent to UniCredit, as well as international banking expertise of ABHH in a number of European countries including CIS. Thanks to the successful synthesis and synergy of the two assets of ABHH in Ukraine, Ukrsotsbank and Alfa-Bank, the banking market of Ukraine will see the rise of a new stronger financial institution. This, in turn, will spur up technological advance, increase efficiency, improve quality of service for the clients, reduce cost of banking services whereas their range will inevitably expand.

The extensive retail network of Ukrsotsbank consists of 237 branches, its headcount reaching nearly 5 thousand employees.
