Migration Media Award 2018 is accepting applications until 15 May 2018

48 winning journalists will receive EU-funded contracts to produce a story focused on diaspora, labour migration, vulnerable groups or legal and irregular migration to counterbalance the narrative on migration.

Background:

The Migration Media Award (MMA) recognizes and rewards the journalistic excellence, relevance and newsworthiness of press pieces dealing with migration in the Euro-Mediterranean region in all its aspects. For its first edition in 2017, the MMA rewarded 35 journalists based in an EU country or a Southern Partner Country (SPC) and had their winning stories published on www.migration-media-award.eu

2018 Migration Media Award

This year’s edition will reward up to 48 published stories resulting from time-intensive, unsensationalistic, in-depth reporting and contributing to balance the narrative on migration, making it, evidence based, nuanced and less polarising. The awards will consist of six categories: Video, radio, online, print, multimedia and photo.

Candidates who wish to apply must submit an already published journalistic work along with a proposal for a second production. If selected, the journalists will receive an EU-funded contract to produce a new original, longer, or more detailed, more researched content covering other aspects of migration or the issue initially dealt with. Interested applicants should check the Eligibility & Application section prior to applying.
