Justyna Kopińska is a Polish reporter, who often focuses on crime and criminal law as well as courts and penitentiary system in the country. Her reportages resulted in criminals being convicted and law being changed to improve the safety standards in children's institutions. Her motto states: "for me, journalism is about giving voice to those, who don't have it". She received European Press Prize in "Distinguished Writing Award" for her reportage unveiling the violence at the psychiatric hospital in Starogard Gdański. Kopińska is the first Polish laureate of European Press Prize, which is often referred to as the European Pulitzer. On top of a successful journalism career, Kopińska published three acclaimed non-fiction books - each of them a collection of in-depth reportages, which break conventions and discover the truth about modern Poland.
