Where are we accepting entries from in 2024

For the 2024 Awards, all entries should focus on stories, topics or issues in, about or related to low- and middle-income countries and peoples across the global south.

Broadly, countries in the global south are located in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia (excluding Israel, Japan, and South Korea), and Oceania (excluding Asia and New Zealand). Global south countries are largely recognised through identifiers such as low standards of living, low income-economies, high poverty levels, deficient health systems, amongst other factors.

As the list of countries which are considered to be global south can vary, we draw on both this list compiled by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Population Review’s Global South Countries 2024 list, and we would consider entries from countries on either of these lists.

We also welcome stories related to indigenous peoples and communities from anywhere in the world.

If you are uncertain whether your entry would meet our criteria or have any questions about the eligibility of your entry please email us at [email protected].uk
