We are committed to supporting strong, vibrant and independent media coverage from developing countries.

“I’m delighted with everything One World Media has done for me. This project has become bigger than I could have imagined and provided me with a really solid entry point into the industry. If OWM hadn’t taken the chance and provided me with the grant, none of it would have happened.”

Dan Faber – One World Media Fellow 2018

Amanda Burrell – Earthrise Executive Producer

It’s been very exciting to see all of this young talent out there that’s waiting to share their stories with the world.”
