Organised in partnership with Euronews, the EEC is proposing six nominees from which will emerge a winner. These six people were chosen by a jury composed of opinion-leaders from the media, academic and civil society, who met to make the nominations at the Press Club Brussels Europe.
The award winner will be honoured during a gala evening that will follow the State of the European Union annual conference which will be held in Brussels on June 6.

President of the European Central Bank, for his enduring management of the Eurozone crisis.
Prime Minister of Luxembourg for his handling of the Eurozone crisis throughout 2012
Member of the European Parliament, Chair of the Education and Culture Committee, for her active role in advancing the talks in the Balkans between Serbia and Kosovo
Vice-President of the European Commission, in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, for defending the rights of minorities in Europe and more recently her stand on the political situation in Hungary
Prime Minister of Poland for his work on getting Poland as a growing economy and back in line with European values
