The EUROPA Prize was founded in 1987 by the European Parliament, the European Commission and the European Cultural Foundation. This competition for outstanding European media content rewards the best European television, radio and online productions, with the aim of publicising them throughout Europe and supporting their continental distribution.

The selection includes television (27 dramas, 25 documentaries, 18 current affairs programmes, 13 TV Iris programmes), radio (33 dramas, 34 documentaries, 15 current affairs and 14 music programmes) and digital media projects (28).
