The Special Award for Development Media is presented by One World Media. It recognizes an outstanding media project or organization working on the ground in the developing world, which has made a real impact on the lives of those living and working near it. Local radio or television initiatives (including a specific program or channel, or a network of stations), print media, or new media that address social or developmental issues are eligible to apply. Advocacy media initiatives working at a grassroots level are also eligible.
The winner of the Special Award will be flown to London, United Kingdom, to receive a trophy at an awards ceremony on June 22, 2010, with all expenses paid. The deadline to apply is February 26, 2010. For more information on the award and how to apply, visit: http://oneworldmedia.org.uk/awards/how_to_enter/special_award.
