Why enter the One World Media Awards?
From stories highlighting our common humanity to investigations that uncover hidden issues to reports that give a voice to the voiceless, the Awards are distinctive in that they recognise the vital work of journalists and filmmakers working on global issues. The aim is to encourage and increase more balanced and accurate media coverage of international stories to support cross-cultural understanding, inclusive development, good governance and democracy worldwide.
'The best thing about the Awards? They recognise, inspire and encourage the sort of thoughtful, responsible journalism that can make a difference. And in today's fast-paced news environment that is exactly the sort of journalism the world needs.'
-Natalia Antelava, winner of the 2013 Radio Award
Your work, if nominated by the judges, will be exposed to countless high-profile media professionals who volunteer their time to be judges for and attend our awards.
We’ll also feature it on our website, and, if nominated, promote it through our unique international network of journalists, filmmakers, commissioners, editors, NGOs, government and business professionals. If you win a One World Media Award, you will join the ranks of those select few who have been recognised over the past 27 years.
'The One World Media Awards are very important for recognising exceptional work by journalists and filmmakers in a rapidly changing media industry where such work might otherwise never get the recognition and exposure that it should.'
