2014 Winners

The 26th annual One World Media Awards took place on Tuesday 6th May at Kings Place in London.

The 2014 One World Media Awards marked the ceremony’s 26th year – and nearly two decades with Jon Snow as presenter. Chairman Myles Wickstead began the night by welcoming a packed audience of journalists, filmmakers, government, development and NGO professionals.

Among the many highlights of the evening included 25-year-old Patrick Kingsley winning the New Voice Award for his work as The Guardian’s Egypt Correspondent, Katrina Manson’s Press Award win for her FT article on the changing face of Mogadishu, a Popular Features Award win for Leave to Remain, a drama based on the stories from real-life asylum seekers and the first-ever winner of the inaugural Short Film Award, Matthew VanDyke’s Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution. The Special Award winner was Nigerian news website Premium Times, which reports on corruption in the country.
