Stichting Democratie en Media (Democracy and Media Foundation)


The Democracy and Media Foundation is committed to a strong and vigorous democracy and offers resistance against totalitarian tendencies within politics and society. The media are crucial in a constitutional democracy. Therefore, the foundation supports various initiatives and organisations that protect and encourage quality independent journalism and media pluralism. For example: publications, lectures, conferences, new media initiatives and journalism awards. Support may come in the form of advice, grants, loans, investments, or financial guarantees. The Democracy and Media Foundation also increasingly initiates its own projects, both within the Netherlands and in other European countries. These projects are often organized in cooperation with related organisations such as is the case with the European Press Prize.
