Announcing the longlists for the OWM Awards 2022

Selected from a record-breaking 600+ entries across 101 countries, we are honoured to announce the longlists in all 15 awards categories.

Each year, we are absolutely in awe of the incredible work journalists and filmmakers around the world do to produce some of the greatest stories — human stories of hope, courage, struggle, triumph. We had some spectacular entries come in from as far and wide as Mongolia and Bhutan, Paraguay and the Solomon Islands. We enjoyed looking through all of them. Thank you to everyone who entered this year. Thank you for all your important work.

The final nominees will be selected by our expert jury panels, and the winners announced at the Awards ceremony on 16 June 2022.
