Underreported Stories – Children in Conflict

As we count down to the One World Media Awards 2019 it occurred to us that our longlisted entries present an excellent set of playlists to catch up on the past year of underreported stories. This week, we highlight the important work featured in our Children in Conflict Reporting Award longlist.

There is no doubt that some of the media in the One World Media Awards is hard viewing. This was particularly true when it came to the reports of child soldiers and child brides in the Children in Conflict category.

But of course, that is exactly why we introduced this new Award.

Vulnerable children need a voice and we can’t turn away when they are in front of us. We have seen that powerful words and images can transform a crisis into a cause that can’t be ignored.

Here you’ll find a selection of our longlist for the 2019 Children In Conflict Reporting Award.
