Description

The One World Media Awards span 15 categories, celebrating work from all media platforms and across a wide range of genres. This year we launched two new categories: the Refugee Reporting Award, sponsored by British Red Cross, and the Women’s Rights in Africa Award, sponsored by the African Development Bank.

Eligibility

Journalists can submit works that have been printed, broadcast or screened either in the United Kingdom or internationally for a global audience. All entries should focus on stories, topics or issues in, about or related to the developing world, including Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States. Jurors will be looking for media that covers underreported stories from the wider world or new angles and approaches to more well-reported stories.

Award

The 2015 One World Media Special Award winner will receive one three-week placement on a professional training program – the CNN Journalism Fellowship at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, USA. The CNN Journalism Fellowship was launched in 1988 by CNN founder Ted Turner. More than 900 journalists from 123 countries and 207 news organisations have participated in this highly sought-after programme since its inception. Click here for more details on the fellowship.

The winning organisation will also receive round-trip airfare to London and accommodation for one representative to attend the One World Media Awards ceremony in June.
