For a committed journalism

In 2020, a new prize is being promoted for emerging careers in journalism (text, photography and illustration). This prize aims to become a platform for the dissemination of projects that show a way of doing journalism that dialogues with the premises of Albert Camus and his way of living “the most beautiful profession in the world.

The Premi Mediterrani Albert Camus Incipiens is awarded every two years (on even years), between each edition of the Trobades, to an author with an incipient career whose proposal of research and journalistic reflection (graphic, photographic or textual) is part of the approach of the next edition of the Trobades (in 2021 under the slogan: There is no life without dialogue) and, from its own prism, dialogue in some way with the Camusian testimony and with the way of understanding the journalism of Albert Camus.

The call for this prize is restricted to the candidatures proposed by our satellites (nominators).

The objectives of the prize are:

1 | To publicize journalistic projects in development in the Mediterranean basin.

2 | To give international visibility to authors at the beginning of their career.

3 | To enhance the dialogue from the present time with the thought of Albert Camus.

4 | To create links between authors from different countries who are working in parallel, in different disciplines.

5 | To project the island of Menorca as a port for ideas, for critical debate with international relevance.

The Premi Mediterrani Albert Camus Incipiens is a unique prize, it is awarded to a single person. The prize is materialized in the production of a book or an exhibition, depending on the characteristics of the awarded work; and in the diffusion of the same one in the habitual channels of the Trobades, and in the participation and presentation of the project in April / May of 2021, in the frame of the III Trobades Mediterrànies Albert Camus 2021.
