The category will recognise outstanding coverage of development and international issues, which may also have a local perspective.
‘The Local Media Award is intended to enable a fairer playing field for non-national broadcast and print media,’ said OWBT director Ritchie Cogan. ‘Acknowledging its regional focus, coverage may reflect the
similarities of communities across the world, as well as straightforward reporting of overseas issues.’
The closing date for entries is 19 March.
