The European Environment Agency (EEA) has launched The Princes' Award 1997 for the best audiovisual production on the theme of "Europe's environment and the challenge of sustainable development". The award, initiated by the EEA, is aimed at increasing public awareness about Europe's environment and promoting public participation in the move towards sustainable development.

The Princes' Award will go to three winners, one for each of the three categories of audiovisual production: documentary and factual; fiction; and multimedia. All productions should take as their point of departure the Rio Declaration of 1992, the EU's Fifth Environmental Action Programme, and the EEA's "Dobris Assessment" of Europe's environment. More specifically, entries should focus on one of the following issues:

- The challenge of sustainability in general;
- A project or problem where sustainability is at stake;
- Innovation in information about the move towards sustainability.

Productions must not have been shown to the public before 1 January 1996 and should be of European origin. In general productions should be in English or French, or have English or French subtitles. Entries in other languages will be accepted, where accompanied by a written translation into English or French.

The Award is named after its two patrons, Prince Frederik of Denmark and Prince Felipe of Spain, and will be judged by a jury of eminent Europeans from the environmental field, including Mrs. Ritt Bjerregaard, European Commissioner for the environment, and Mr. Ken Collins, Chairman of the European Parliament's Environment Committee.
