Global Media Competition: Reporting Fairly on Labour Migration

The International Labour Organisation has launched its first-ever global competition for the media, entitled ‘Reporting Fairly on Labour Migration’ to recognize exemplary media coverage on the topic. The competition is organized jointly with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

Both professional journalists as well as citizen journalists are invited to submit a maximum of two pieces of their journalistic work that demonstrates fair reporting on labour migration. Entries can be either in video broadcast or multimedia formats, but must have been created and published between June 1, 2014 –December 1st, 2015 to qualify.

Winners will be announced on 18 December 2015, marking this year’s International Migrants Day. The winners will receive a cash prize of US$1,000 from the ILO. They will also see their work promoted on the ILO website and in future conferences, trainings and other major events.
