About the Awards

The Parliament Magazine’s MEP Awards aim to acknowledge and celebrate the work MEPs have devoted to various policy areas over the past year. This is not limited to just the big achievements but also includes every small policy change for the better.

This year we have chosen to highlight the work of MEPs in 10 categories.

Nominations are now open and close on 20th July 2018. So, make sure to cast your vote as every little vote counts towards the count.

This year we are seeking nominations in the following categories:

– Health MEP

– Environment MEP

– Justice & Fundamental Rights MEP

– Development MEP

– Employment MEP

– Regional MEP

– Research & Technology MEP

– Energy MEP

– Culture and Heritage MEP

– Campaigning MEP of the Year

The Shortlist

mepThe three MEPs with the most nominations in each category will be selected to the shortlist. The Guide to the Nominees with information on each selected MEP will be distributed in The Parliament Magazine in September.

It is also possible for one MEP to be a winner of multiple awards.
