The fourth WASH Media Award is now accepting entries. WASH refers to issues related to water supply, sanitation or hygiene (WASH). The competition is open to journalists who publish or broadcast original investigative stories and reports on WASH-related issues and their impact on individual and country development. The awards are administered by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI).
The WASH Media Awards aim to promote coverage of WASH issues in the media, and positively influence decision-makers, the private sector, and civil society as well as individuals and households.
Six prizes will be awarded, including the categories of radio, print and online, and TV. The six winners will receive a cash prize and participate in World Water Week in Stockholm in August 2012 as special guests of WSSCC and SIWI. All entries will be evaluated by an international jury of distinguished media professionals.
Entries will be accepted in English, French and Hindi. Works not originally produced in these languages must be translated into one of them. To be eligible, entries must be published or broadcast between April 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012.
Deadline for entries is April 1, 2012.
