The 24th annual One World Media Awards took place on Tuesday 8th May at Kings Place, London.
With Jon Snow once again at the helm, the 2012 Awards was attended by over 350 media, development and NGO professionals. The ceremony was a special celebration marking 25 years of charitable work by One World Media.
As always, the Awards showcased the best media coverage of the wider world. Work from all media platforms and a wide range of genres was celebrated at our 24th annual ceremony, the foremost international media awards event in the UK.
Highlights included Jamal Osman being named Journalist of the Year for his series of reports from Somalia, a double-win for Sri Lanka's Killing Fields in the Documentary and Television categories, and the first ever winners of the News Award, ITV's Hagadera Hospital report and the Guardian's hard-hitting article Nato units left 61 migrants to die of hunger and thirst.
The ceremony also featured the fourth One World Media Youth Jury, a group of four young people selected through a national competition, who got the opportunity to travel to London from across the country to judge the Children's Rights Award.
