El Premio Lorenzo Natali recompensa la labor de los periodistas que actúan al servicio de los derechos humanos y la democracia. La convocatoria de este año ha superado todos los récords con la participación de más de 1 500 candidatos de 165 países.

El 3 de mayo, Louis Michel, Comisario de Desarrollo y Ayuda Humanitaria, felicitó a los 15 finalistas procedentes de cinco zonas del planeta: África, Asia y Pacífico, Europa, Iberoamérica y Caribe y Mundo Árabe, Irán e Israel. Louis Michel recordó el «papel crucial que los periodistas desempeñan en la defensa de la democracia y los derechos humanos cuando hacen gala de ética e ingenio; sin democracia y sin libertad de prensa, el desarrollo no puede mantenerse.»

La libertad de prensa y el acceso a la información forman parte de los derechos fundamentales que Europa fomenta activamente dentro y fuera de sus fronteras, en concreto mediante la Iniciativa Europea para la Democracia y los Derechos Humanos .

El 3 de mayo, la Comisión Europea se unió a la UNESCO en la celebración del Día Mundial de la Libertad de Prensa , cuyo tema de este año era la libertad de prensa, la seguridad de los periodistas y la impunidad de los crímenes de los que son víctimas. Numerosos periodistas sufren aún hoy intimidaciones, amenazas y censura, o arriesgan su vida en el ejercicio de su profesión. Se concedió a título póstumo el Premio Mundial de la Libertad de Prensa-  a Anna Politkovskaya, periodista rusa asesinada el pasado 7 de octubre.

Por último, la Comisión hizo un llamamiento por la liberación de Alan Johnston, corresponsal de la BBC en Gaza, retenido como rehén desde el 12 de marzo.
