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 24. (This year's awards feature several exceptions. See below for details.)


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 and that takes a solutions journalism approach. In 2021, this award will focus fully on coverage for children (age 12 and younger) of the COVID-19 pandemic.

DEADLINE - 15 April 2021



THE PLANET AWARD - Reporting or initiatives that effectively provide young audiences with information and hope for saving the planet.


Details about this award will be available on 1 May 2021.
