The Next Edition
OF THE PRIZE
The third edition of GLOBAL YOUTH & NEWS MEDIA PRIZE was postponed until 2021 in the wake of the global impact of the Covid-19 virus. It was replaced by the first world teenage reporting project in which teenage journalists from 19 countries covered more than 60 of the untold stories about how their peers were helping during the pandemic
This third edition of the GLOBAL YOUTH & NEWS MEDIA PRIZE will have three core award categories open to any kind of news media on any platform and run by people of any age. The award celebrates news media work that serves, supports and both attracts and learns from young audiences. Unless otherwise specified, the primary target of initiatives must be young audiences ages 13 to 21. In addition, the 2021 edition will have two special awards (details to be confirmed).
Entries can be self-submitted or nominated by third party
Members of the international jury keep in mind three things:
1. Impact - Effectiveness of the initiative in serving, supporting, attracting and/or learning from young audiences, especially as evidenced by measurable impact. This is a key element.
2. Inspiration - Adaptability of the idea to other countries.
3. Innovation - This does not preclude an initiative that has been going on for some time that still produces excellent results thanks to smart evolution.
THE JOURNALISM AWARD - Breakthrough reporting with, about and/or for young audience that produces a clear, important impact.
THE NEWS/MEDIA LITERACY AWARD - Initiatives that effectively educate about journalism and news media in ways that help young audiences navigate all kinds of content as they develop news habits and knowledge key to developing active citizenship. Again, a key is a clear, important impact.
THE PLANET AWARD - Reporting or initiatives that effectively provide young audiences with information and hope for saving the planet.
Full details about the 2021 edition and how to enter will be available starting 1 March 2021.
