The One Young World is delighted to launch the annual Journalist of the Year Award again for 2024.

In an age of mass information and misinformation, the role of journalists is more important than ever. The 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 essential means to ensure freedom of speech and defence of rights are justly upheld in all regions worldwide.

The One Young World Journalist of the Year Award was created in 2020 to identify and promote five of the world’s most impactful journalists changing how stories are reported and having a positive global impact.

The award winners will be chosen by an international panel of judges with first-hand experience in journalism. Their decisions will be based on the work the young journalists have carried in their countries and communities and its benefits and impact on young people.
