Founded in 2002, the Costa Press Club is a fully-recognized and accredited association under Spanish law, providing members with a unique social and professional forum. Meetings are held in a variety of venues on average every two months, normally with guest speakers.

In addition, the Club can be contacted at any time by foreign media researching Spain or Spanish-based organisations wishing to find out more about international media and communities on the Costa del Sol.

Club membership is open to anyone with a background in journalism or media content provision, including print newspapers and magazines, online digital, photography, television, radio, multimedia and social media.

Our aims are:

 to provide a regular social forum/meeting place for resident and visiting journalists and media content providers

 to share industry information and contacts

 act as a voice/lobby for foreign-resident journalists and to promote the role of international media in the multicultural life of southern Spain

 provide valuable professional and peer support & recognition, whatever stage in your career

The awards are made annually. The nomination period for 2016 is now open. For more details and past winners see here. We also award a young persons' prize.
