The European Commission will award the Prizes on the basis of a proposal from the EU jury and a pre-selection made by national juries which have an advisory role.
In each EU Member State an independent jury will evaluate the articles and choose one national nominee. This jury is made up of national experts in public health issues and well-known journalists. The president of the jury will be an official from the Permanent Representation of the European Commission.
The Prize to the European winner and two runners-up will be awarded by the Commission advised by a jury made up of EU officials, experts in the field of European public health and well-known journalists.
