Journalists from developing countries are invited to submit original investigative reports on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) issues to the WASH Media Awards. The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council and Stockholm International Water Institute are co-sponsoring the awards. They aim to reward journalists whose work has a proven impact on improving WASH services in their country or locality.
Articles or broadcasts may be submitted in French, English, or Spanish. (Works not originally published or broadcast in one of these languages must be translated in order to be considered.) Prizes will be awarded in each of the three competition languages, with an additional prize awarded for the best entry that deals specifically with issues related to gender and water, sanitation, or hygiene. Winners will be invited to receive their award at the Stockholm World Water Week, scheduled for August 2008.
