Who We Are

One World Media is a non-profit committed to excellence in media coverage of the wider world. We believe the best media highlights our common humanity, breaks down prejudices and enables new voices to be heard.

What We Do

Our Production Fund supports the next generation of international correspondents and documentary filmmakers to produce stories that enlighten and inform.

Our workshops teach specialised skills for international reporting, either through established university media courses or directly to early career international correspondents.

Our annual Awards celebrate the best media coverage of the developing world.

Our events bring together the industry’s decision-makers to debate pressing editorial issues, as well as creating opportunities for new talent to meet gatekeepers.
