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.
‘At a time when shrinking newsroom budgets often preclude in-depth coverage of stories beyond our borders, the role of organizations like One World Media in recognizing and supporting journalism from across the Global South is more vital than ever before.’
-Roopa Gogineni, 2018 Short Film Award Winner
The 2018 One World Media Award winners were announced at a ceremony at BAFTA on Monday 18 June. Hosted by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, the 30th Anniversary Awards celebrated outstanding work from all media platforms and across a wide range of genres.
Since their inception in 1988, the One World Media Awards have recognised the work of over 1000 journalists and filmmakers highlighting stories from around the world on a range of issues.
