Annual human rights and development journalism awards presented by BMZ and Deutsche Welle. The awards are open to journalists from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Germany. Deadline is May 31, 2013.
The German Development Media Awards honor outstanding reporting on human rights and development. The awards aim to champion independent media across the world and put the spotlight on journalists telling important stories affecting their communities, countries and regions.
These awards are an initiative by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Germany's international broadcaster, Deutsche Welle.
BMZ has a proud tradition of honoring German journalists who focus on international development issues. Now, in partnership with Deutsche Welle, the German Media Development Awards are also open to journalists from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as Germany.
Entries should focus clearly on human rights and development and can be in any journalistic format for print, radio, TV or online.
As of 2013, the awards also included a People's Choice Award open to African press photographers covering human rights in Africa.
The entries must have been published or broadcast between January 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.
Seven cash prizes worth 2,000 euros each will be presented as part of the awards. Each winner will also be invited to Berlin to attend the awards ceremony on August 14, 2013.
