Transparency International calls for nominations for its One World Media Corruption Reporting Award

Deadline for entries 5 February

Transparency International is sponsoring the One World Media Corruption Reporting award for the second time as part of the 2015 One World Media Awards. The deadline for entries is 5 February 2015.

The goal is to highlight and encourage the coverage of corruption around the world. Reporting about corruption takes courage and determination. The award seeks to honour journalists who bring the abuses of entrusted power to light because only when corruption is uncovered, can it be tackled.

The award covers broadcast, radio, TV, print and web reports accessible in English about corruption in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Oceania, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States.

The winner of the award last year was the BBC Panorama documentary Where’s our aid money gone? This investigation confronted one of the world’s biggest, most successful development organisations: the Global Fund about misdirected money and an alleged internal cover-up in Cambodia.

For more information on last year’s finalists, which included a sting operation by an on-line news outlet, Cobrapost, to uncover money laundering in India and an investigation by UK Channel Four’s Unreported World into fraud at an orphanage in Nepal by click here.
