PARIS - French journalist Prune Antoine has been awarded the Prix Louise Weiss for European Journalism for her story on organ trafficking in Kosovo, supported by Journalismfund.eu. The prize is awarded every year to French-speaking, European journalists.

Antoine received the prize in the category 'Décryptage', which focuses on investigations, portraits, interviews and dossiers. Her Journalismfund.eu-supported story on organ trafficking in Kosovo, for which she won the award, was published in 12 chapters on CafeBabel.fr under the title 'Cadavre exquis au pays des merles noirs'. It was also published as a long-read on Creativist. It deals with the alleged trafficking of organs from Serbian prisoners organised by Kosovo guerilla fighters at the beginning of the new millennium.

The Prix Louise Weiss was launched in 2005 in memory of journalist Louise Weiss. The aim of the award is to encourage journalists to treat European topics in a more systematic, pedagogical and original way. Prune Antoine had already won the Prix Louise Weiss once before in the category 'Junior', in 2010.
