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 underreported stories featured in our Print Award longlist.

When we’re reviewing media for the One World Media Awards, the ones that stand out are exploring new angles on familiar topics or challenging misperceptions and stereotypes of developing countries.

You’ll see all these qualities in these articles, with journalists bringing us stories we might otherwise have never heard.

Whether it is toppling a dictator in Gambia, female activists in Yemen or water causing friction in Turkey and Iraq, they are all going to make you sit up and maybe even rethink your point of view.

Dive deep into all kinds of untold stories from developing countries with the longlisted entries in our One World Media Awards Print category.
