The One World Media Awards this year come at an unusual time, as we face the Covid-19 pandemic.

In response to the exceptional work of journalists and filmmakers covering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in developing countries, we are launching the Coronavirus Reporting Award 2020, supported by EBRD.Ā 

Eligibility

All entries should focus on stories, topics or issues in, about or related to theĀ developing world, including Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States. Jurors will be looking for media that covers underreported stories or new angles and approaches to more familiar stories.

Entries must have had their first screening, broadcast, theatrical release, launch or publication between 1 December 2019 and 30 July 2020.

The Coronavirus Reporting Award is open to entrants anywhere in the world, as long as the work meetsĀ oneĀ of the following criteria:

  • the entry has been broadcast, screened or published (in print or in an established online publication/website) in the UK; OR
  • the entry has been broadcast or published (in an established print/online publication/website) internationally and is available for an English-speaking audience; OR
