“Winning the One World Media International Journalist of the Year award is extraordinary. It has brought so much attention to my work as a journalist. But I’m excited at the fact that more people now show interest in what’s going on in the vulnerable and dangerous places in Africa I’ve reported about.”
Philip Obaji Jr, 2023 winner of the International Journalist of the Year Award
One World Media Award Categories 2024
The awards celebrate work across 15 categories and a wide range of media platforms, spotlighting the year’s best media coverage of underreported stories from around the world.
“Getting this recognition from OWM inspires us to continue our work covering “sacrifice zones”, places where profits are put before human rights, health, and the climate, and where people’s voices are too often silenced or ignored.”
Jess Kelly & Owen Pinnell of BBC News Arabic, 2023 winners of the Television Documentary Award
“For us it’s an honour to be at One World Media among so many other great filmmakers and to see our voices amplified throughout this award. We are beyond thrilled.”
Juliana Curi, winner of the 2023 Feature Documentary Award
