WHO Violence Against Children Reporting Contest

Applications are now open! Learn more and apply. 
Deadline: October 16, 2022 
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) are conducting a Violence Against Children reporting contest to raise awareness and spur dialogue around critical – yet underreported – issues of violence against children around the world. 
Journalists reporting on violence against children in English or Spanish in Colombia, Kenya, and the Philippines are eligible. To be considered, your violence against children story must be 1) published between September 1, 2022 and October 16, 2022, and 2) use best reporting practices from the WHO new media guide for proper reporting on violence against children. In each of the eligible countries, a $1,000 first-place prize, $750 second-place prize, and a $500 third-place prize will be awarded. 
Multimedia stories, podcasts, photo reportage, cross-border stories, and series of stories are welcome. Collaboration within newsrooms or across borders, use of social media and audience feedback, post-story engagement with policy- and decision-makers, and other ways of maximizing the impact of the story are highly encouraged.  
Send your story submission to skhashimov@icfj.org by October 16, 2022, to be considered.
