One World Youth Jury 2010

Thanks to Adriene Leong for the post below.


Be Part of the One World Youth Jury 2010

Aged 16-21? Interested in the media and young people's issues around the world? Enter our competition to be part of the One World Youth Jury - and win a trip to London to visit TV channels, newspapers, and meet leading journalists and filmmakers.

  • Competition closes on 8th March - more details below

The One World Media Awards is a leading awards event in the UK. It's open to films, radio programmes, newspaper articles and websites, and it's there to recognise the best media coverage of the developing world. The prestigious Awards are presented in a televised ceremony each year.

The One World Media Awards are made up of a range of categories, and each has its own jury panel.

Right now we're looking for four young people to judge one of the awards - the Children's Rights Award, sponsored by Unicef. It's for media that acknowledges the voices of young people in the developing world. In 2009, the winner was Saving Africa's Witch Children, a documentary on Channel 4 about children branded as 'witches' in parts of Nigeria.

Could you be one of our young judges? We're running a competition to find them. 

What you could win

If you're one of the four selected young jurors for 2010, we'll let you know in late March. Then, here's what will happen:

  • you will be sent about 10 entries for the Children's Rights Award in early April. These will be a mixture of TV and radio programmes, plus written articles, and you'll have 3-4 weeks to watch/read/listen to them
  • we will invite you to London from 25-27 April, with all expenses paid for, to take part in a series of activities organised for you. You'll visit live TV news programmes as they go out, visit newspaper offices, and meet leading journalists and filmmakers to hear their experiences of covering overseas stories
  • on 27th April you will take part in a jury meeting to select the winner of the Children's Rights Award
  • you will then come to the One World Media Awards ceremony, on 22nd June in London, and present the Children's Rights Award.
