Local radio stations and other media organizations working to address social or developmental issues in the developing world are invited to apply for One World Broadcasting Trust’s Special Award for Development Media. Advocacy media initiatives working at a grassroots level and involving staff from the local area are also eligible to enter.
The Special Award is given to an outstanding media project or organization that has made a real impact on the lives of those living and working nearby. The jury will give greater consideration to projects with a wider reach and a greater impact. It is also interested in considering new and innovative ways of reaching a wider audience, while ensuring that local views and voices are incorporated.
The winner will be flown to London, England, to receive a trophy at a ceremony on June 22, 2009, with all expenses paid. For more information and details on how to enter, go to: http://www.oneworldmediaawards.org.
