Video Volunteers a top contender for the One World Media Awards

We have great news to share! We made it to the top three organisations selected for the One World Media Awards, to be given away in London on May 6th!

The judges have chosen our entry as one of the top three finalists competing for the Special Award. Under this category, we are one of only two organizations from India to make it to the top three.

 Now in their 26th year, the One World Media Awards, are one of the foremost awards events in the UK. They celebrate excellence in international media coverage of the developing world and recognise the unique role of journalists and filmmakers in increasing cultural understanding and promoting fairness and justice worldwide.

The Special Award that we’ve been nominated for is “for an independent media organisation based in the developing world, whose outstanding media content has made a real impact on people’s lives. The purpose of the award is to demonstrate the positive value of media to society.”

The other nominees in the Special category are Premium Times in Nigeria, and Uks in Pakistan. You can see the full lists of all finalists for this year’s Awards here.

We are so honoured that the tireless efforts of our 206 Community Correspondents, the individuals at the heart of VV’s work, are being recognised at an international platform like this. Thank you to everyone who made it possible!
