COVID-19 is a global story like few others. We’re connected by a shared crisis that presents us all with new ways of living and seeing the world. One World Media wants to champion stories that show what is happening beyond our borders and spotlight international perspectives on the pandemic.

Applications are currently being received. Apply with stories that show the potential solutions, the urgent needs and the surprising implications of COVID-19 around the world. The Award will be for a piece of media in any format, including print, film, audio, or digital media.

  • Entries must have had their first screening, broadcast, theatrical release, launch or publication between December 1, 2019 and July 30, 2020.
  • The Coronavirus Reporting Award is open to entrants anywhere in the world, as long as the work meets one of the following criteria:
