Kathimerini English Edition journalist wins European award

Kathimerini English Edition’s deputy editor, Nick Malkoutzis, has been named as the winner of the 10th edition of the “Ernest Udina Award for European Trajectory,” which is given out annually by the Association of European Journalists of Catalonia (APEC).

Malkoutzis, who has been with Kathimerini since 2004, was chosen as this year’s winner for his “professionalism and European spirit,” APEC said it in its announcement. The association added that it wanted to focus on Greece with this year’s award because of the serious challenges the country’s predicament poses to the European Union.

“Entities like the APEC defend [the belief] that the European Union is more necessary than ever before,” the group said.

APEC was founded in Barcelona in 1989 by a group of journalists aiming to spread the values of European integration. The association has some 120 members.

Previous winners of the Ernest Udina award include David Gardner of the Financial Times and Cristina Gallach, who is currently the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. The award ceremony will take place on July 3 in Barcelona.

“This is a very well-deserved award,” commented Nikos Konstandaras, editor of Kathimerini English Edition.

“Thanks to Nick and the small team of talented and dedicated journalists that he manages and coordinates, Kathimerini English Edition and have become a most valuable source of news and analysis, a reference point for everyone interested in Greece at this crucial time.”
