“After a fantastic year, we’re now looking forward to 2020 and some of the exciting projects we have planned. From expanding our Fellowship to support an additional 10 journalists from across Africa, to our 2020 Awards and events calendar, we will continue building on One World Media’s mission to champion underreported stories that break down stereotypes, change the narrative and connect people from different cultures”

– Gemma Bradshaw, Director
