The 2009 One World Media Awards took place at The Brewery on Chiswell Street in London, presented for the first time by Fergal Keane. Once again, over 400 figures from the media industry, international development sector, and government were in attendance to celebrate the most outstanding media coverage of the developing world over the last year.
The 2009 One World Media Awards ceremony was presented for the first time by Fergal Keane, who paid tribute to the "brave and great reporting recognised by tonight's awards," adding that "these awards are among the most coveted anywhere."
Among the winners were Joe Berlinger, the acclaimed director of Crude, which took away the International Documentary Award; Jonathan Miller, the veteran Channel 4 News correspondent who was named Broadcast Journalist of the Year; and the team behind Iran and the West, which won the TV Documentary Award.
The new Drama Award was won by Under the Bombs, directed by Philippe Aractingi. Meanwhile, the Children's Rights Award, which was judged for the first time by a specially selected Youth Jury, went to Dispatches: Saving Africa's Witch Children.
The Special Award went to B'Tselem, a pioneering media initiative that distributes cameras and runs video training activities for Palestinian men, women and children in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Read more about their project here.
The ceremony was filmed and broadcast by BBC World News channel.
