The 2014 Awards are NOW OPEN for entries, with a closing deadline of 29th January. Click here to see how to enter and here to see this year's categories. This year we've launched the Corruption Reporting Award sponsored by Transparency International and the Short Film Award for films up to 20 minutes in length alongside our long-standing categories such as Press, Radio, Documentary and International Journalist of the Year. The 2014 awards ceremony will take place on 6 May at Kings Place in London.
'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, in my view, exactly the sort of journalism the world needs.'
-Natalia Antelava, winner of the 2013 Radio Award
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 and encourage the vital work of journalists in this field. The aim is to increase the exposure and scope of international coverage to support inclusive development, good governance and democracy worldwide.
Your work, if shortlisted, 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 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 26 years.
