We are delighted to announce the Third Edition of the writing award in the memory of our friend and colleague, Rubén Perea Molleda. As in previous editions, the winning paper will be published in a special issue of the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice, together with a selection of the very best submissions received (have a look at the special Issues of March 2021 and April 2022).

The winners of the two previous editions received their awards from Executive Vice-President Vestager on 22 March 2022. EVP Vestager will also deliver the award to the winner of the upcoming 3rd edition.
