Contest focuses on coverage of labor migration [Worldwide]

Posted on August 22, 2017

Deadline: 

October 27, 2017

Professional journalists are invited to submit articles or videos/multimedia to this contest.

The International Labor Organization (ILO) is accepting entries for its 2017 global media competition. 

The contest aims to show the positive results of good labor migration governance while not overlooking the negative aspects (e.g. often a hard reality of exploitation and violation of human and labor rights), and highlight the positive contribution of migrant workers to countries of origin, transit and destination.

There are two thematic areas: labor migration aspects and fair recruitment of migrant workers. The categories are written articles and videos/photos/audio. Articles should not exceed 8,000 words and videos/audio should not be longer than 10 minutes. 

Entries in other languages than English, French and Spanish must include a translation.

Four winners will receive US$1,000 each. 

The deadline is Oct. 27.
