The One World Media Awards 2010 took place on 22nd June at Kings Place, London. Once again, the ceremony was broadcast on BBC World News to a global audience of millions.
Jon Snow returned to present the ceremony, while the keynote speaker was the Rt Hon Lord Malloch-Brown, formerly Minister of State for Africa, Asia and the UN, and then Vice-Chairman of the World Economic Forum.
Notable winners included Dan McDougall, who was named Journalist of the Year; filmmaker Jamie Doran, who was behind two award winning documentaries; and Makutano Junction, which won the New Media Award after being shortlisted for the Special Award in 2009. The Special Award winner in 2010 was the radio programme Samajhdari, run by Equal Access Nepal. The Drama Award went to the film Birdwatchers and was presented to Director Marco Bechis by actress Greta Scacchi.
The ceremony also featured the second One World Youth Jury, a group of four young people selected in a national competition who got the opportunity to judge the Children’s Rights Award. 2010 also saw the first One World Media Week, a series of related events that took place in the same week as the awards ceremony around London.
