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.
In 2018, One World Media is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the annual Awards. A very special ceremony will take place at BAFTA in June.
‘The One World Media Awards honour those journalists who bring rich and vibrant stories from the global south which often get ignored by the mass media. They are an integral fixture in the media industry.’
-Hasan Patel, Al Jazeera English
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.
