The annual One World Media Awards is one of the foremost awards in the UK. It rewards the most outstanding coverage of developing countries and recognises the critical role of journalists and filmmakers in increasing cultural understanding and supporting equality and justice worldwide.
Winners of the 2016 One World Media Awards were announced at the ceremony on 16th June at BAFTA in London.
Next call for entries: The entry period for the 2017 Awards will open in early December.
'The One World Media Awards have become one of the most important awards of the year. Its juries are rigorous and well-informed and the Awards represent a commitment to investing in journalism in the developing world. In an era where a lot of news is processed and designed to hit lowest common denominators, the principles that One World Media stand for shine like a beacon for us all.'
-Tim Singleton, Deputy Editor and Director of Newsgathering, ITV News
