UN organizes journalism competition [Worldwide]

Posted on Aug 1, 2019 in Specialized Topics

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 written and electronic works for a U.N. coverage contest that consists of three awards: print (and online), broadcast and climate change.

Works must have been published or aired between September 2018 and August 2019.

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.

The prizes amount to over US$60,000 that 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.
