A message from OWM Director, Gemma Bradshaw

As our Director, Gemma Bradshaw, leaves One World Media, she talks about her experience of leading the organisation. 


It has been five incredible years being Director of One World Media, but now I’m taking the leap and moving to another role. I feel privileged to have worked with so many talented, thoughtful filmmakers and journalists from around the world during my time here.

Forging a community of like-minded storytellers that know the importance of shining a spotlight on untold stories, bringing nuance and creativity to reporting on the global south.

In the past few weeks alone, I’ve seen one of our Fellows premiere their film at the London Film Festival; a filmmaker from our Global Short Docs Forum having their film published on Mongabay; and our Global Reporting Summit meeting a packed audience in Kenya.

One World Media has an incredibly dedicated, supportive board and team that has allowed us to put our programmes on an international stage. Supporting more emerging filmmakers and journalists from the global south through our new talent programmes and celebrating the best in global media at our prestigious annual Awards Ceremony and events.

If you think you or someone in your network could be the next Director, I would encourage anyone to take a look at the job description and apply.

One World Media is a dynamic and impactful organisation that I’ve enjoyed being a part of and can only imagine it will go from strength to strength.
