Journalist of the Year Award

In an age of mass information and misinformation, the role of journalists is more important than ever. Our societies rely on the core values of journalism - truthfulness and objectivity- to stay informed and shape opinions.

One Young World believes that the next generation of young journalists are paramount to creating powerful and meaningful change, providing the important means to ensure freedom of speech and a defence of rights are justly upheld in all regions across the world.

The One Young World's Journalist of the Year Award 2020 was created to identify and promote 5 of the world's most impactful journalists who are changing the way stories are reported and having a positive global impact.
