Journalists worldwide who cover the United Nations, including its agencies and field operations, are eligible for awards.

The United Nations Correspondents Association (UNCA) is accepting electronic works for a U.N. coverage contest that awards outstanding print, broadcast and online media coverage of COVID-19, climate change and the United Nations, U.N. agencies and field operations.

Works must have been published or aired between September 2019 and August 2021.

Entries can be submitted in any of the official U.N. languages (English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Russian). Entries in other languages must be accompanied by a translation in English or French.

Cash prizes will be distributed among the winners. U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres will present the prizes at the awards ceremony in December in New York.

The contest deadline is Sept. 15.
