Established in 1988, the One World Media Awards recognise the best media coverage of the developing world, reflecting the social, political and cultural life of people around the globe. The Awards highlight the unique role of journalists and filmmakers in bridging the divide between cultures worldwide and raising awareness of underreported issues and stories.
All entries should focus on stories, topics or issues in, about or related to the developing world, including Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States. Jurors will be looking for media that covers underreported stories or new angles and approaches to more familiar stories.
Entries must have had their first screening, broadcast, theatrical release, launch or publication between 14 February 2018 and 14 February 2019.
With the exception of the Special Award, all categories are open to entrants anywhere in the world, as long as the work meets one of the following criteria:
- the entry has been broadcast, screened or published (in print or in an established online publication/website) in the UK
- the entry has been broadcast or published (in print or in an established online publication/website) internationally for a global English-speaking audience (in an international channel/publication/website with an outlet in the UK or distribution worldwide)
- the entry has been screened at an international film festival
A limited number of entry fee discounts are also available for journalists, filmmakers and media outlets from developing countries.
Deadline for applications: 14 February 2018
