Full Funded Travel Opportunity to Germany with One Young World Journalist Of The Year 2020

One Young World has launched its Journalist Of The Year Award 2020. This award was created to recognize five of the most promising young journalists between the ages of 18 to 35 from around the world. The purpose of this award is to highlight the work of young journalists who are fearlessly and boldly inspiring others through their work, changing the way stories are reported, and empowering others by giving them a voice.

In an age of mass information and misinformation, the role of journalists is more important than ever. Our societies rely on the core values of journalism - truthfulness and objectivity- to stay informed and shape opinions. But the pursuit of these values can come at a tragic cost. Free speech has long been threatened and journalists continue to face challenges when trying to unveil the truth and raise the voices of those who cannot do so for themselves.

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, in the last 20 years, “a reported 1040 journalists have been killed” and “1381 have been imprisoned” as a result of their work across the world. The tragic deaths of Lyra McKee, Daphne Caruana Galizia and Jamal Khashoggi evidence the growing threat to freedom of expression. One Young World believes that the next generation of young journalists are paramount to creating powerful and meaningful change, providing the important means to ensure freedom of speech and a defense of rights are justly upheld in all regions across the world.

Eligibility criteria:

To be considered for the award, nominees must:

  1. Be aged between 18 and 35 years old.

  4. Have demonstrable interest in the pursuit of social, economic and/or political rights through journalism.
