One World Media Awards
Our patron Jon Snow presenting the Awards at BAFTA.
'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
