Journalists from Asia and the Pacific can participate in this competition.
The Developing Asia Journalism Awards (DAJA), sponsored by the Asian Development Bank Institute, will recognize the work of journalists addressing the impact of environmental issues on the region's poor population.
Possible topic areas include climate change (droughts, flooding, sea-level rise, etc.); energy use/efficiency; renewable energy; water, waste and forest management; sustainable transport; pollution; and urban development.
Articles must be between 1,000 and 2,000 words, and submitted in English. Translations of articles originally published in other languages are acceptable.
The panel of judges will select 25 finalists. Cash prizes will be awarded to one winner, two runners-up and one Young Development Journalist of the Year (under age 30 as of Aug. 31). All finalists will be invited to the Asian Development Bank Institute in Tokyo in November 2012 for a special DAJA forum and awards ceremony.
