The International Labour Organization (ILO) is launching the eighth edition of its annual Global Media Competition. Its aim is to recognize fair and balanced reports that contribute to the elimination of xenophobia and discrimination against migrant workers.
The Global Media Competition contributes to support the production of quality reporting and raising awareness about labour migration, which is a topic that features strongly in the United Nations Declaration on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015.
- The competition is open to professional and student journalists and will be judged by a panel of international migration and journalism experts.
- The winning entries will be selected according to a range of criteria including creativity, accuracy, balance and the positive portrayal of labour migration, including the multidimensional aspects of migrant workers’ lives.
Winners are announced each year on 18 December, international Migrants day. They are selected by a panel of experts in international migration and journalism.
Prices have included cash prices as well as fellowships to participate in an online course of the International Training Centre of the ILO on fair recruitment or labour migration topics.
31 October 2022 (23:59, Central European Time): Deadline for submissions, via the online entry form.
December 2022: Competition winners will be announced to celebrate International Migrants Day.
