2013.03 GDMA German Development Media Awards

Honoring outstanding reporting on human rights and development

The German Development Media Awards recognize excellence in human rights and development journalism. The awards champion independent media across the world and put the spotlight on journalists telling important stories affecting their communities, countries and regions.

These awards are a new initiative by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Germany's international broadcaster, Deutsche Welle.

The BMZ has a proud tradition of honoring German journalists who focus on international development issues. Now, in partnership with Deutsche Welle, the new German Media Development Awards are also open to journalists from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.

The German Development Media Awards aim to support the work of talented journalists around the world and to emphasize the role of human rights and development in strengthening democracy, good governance, civil society and freedom of the press.

More than 1000 entries from 109 countries


Deutsche Welle and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development would like to thank all journalists and photographers who entered this year's awards.
