Entries are invited from eligible candidates for the World Health Organization (WHO) Road Safety Reporting Contest 2021.
About the Contest
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) are conducting a WHO Road Safety reporting contest to raise consciousness and spur dialogue around critical – but underreported – highway safety issues with a Vision Zero/Safe System Approach.
Underreported issues include road design and quality, unsafe and polluting used automobiles, cost and extent of crash-related accidents, air pollution resulting from exhaust emissions, protected public transport urban cycling. Multimedia stories, podcasts, photo reportage, cross-border tales, and series of stories are welcome.
Collaboration inside newsrooms or throughout borders, use of social media and audience suggestions, post-story engagement with policy- and decision-makers, and different methods of maximizing the impact of the reporting are highly encouraged.
- Journalists reporting on highway safety in English, Spanish or Portuguese in Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, India, Mexico, and Uganda are eligible.
- To be considered, your road safety story must be printed between August 1, 2021, and December 1, 2021.
In each of the eligible countries, a $1,000 first-place prize and $750 second-place prize shall be awarded.
Send the link to your story to [email protected] by December 1, 2021, to be considered.
