ILO 2017 Global Media Competition on Labour Migration
The Centre is part of the jury of this global competition which aims at encouraging quality reporting on labour migration. Deadline for applications is 27 October 2017.
The 2017 Global Media Competition on Labour Migration will contribute to the UN TOGETHER campaign (https://together.un.org/ ) which has the aim of encouraging global action to promote non-discrimination and addressing the problem of rising xenophobia against refugees and migrants.
Professional journalists are invited to submit a maximum of two entries, one in each of the two following categories:
- Media Production (photo journalism, audio, video)
- Written articles (online or printed articles)
Articles should not exceed 8,000 words and videos/multimedia should not be of more than 10 minutes’ duration. Submissions must have been published between 1 January 2016 and 27 October 2017 to qualify.
Refugees and displaced persons, employed as workers outside their home countries, are considered migrant workers. As such, submissions covering international migrant workers and refugees will be accepted.
A total of four winners (one per category, per thematic area) will receive $1,000 USD each. Winning entries will be featured on the ILO website and widely promoted as an example of good journalism.
To enter the competition, please fill in the online entry form before 27 October 2017 (by 23:59 hours, Central European Time, at the latest). Entries are accepted in three languages: English, French, and Spanish. Entries in other languages will be accepted provided that the applicant also submits a faithful translation in one of the three languages mentioned above. Winners will be officially announced on 18 December to mark International Migrants Day. For further enquiries, please contact: Labour-Migration-Media-Competition@ilo.org .
 Entries submitted should address either one of the following two thematic areas: (i) Labour migration aspects (migrant workers’ contribution to the social and economic development of countries of origin and destination; the protection of their labour rights; the recognition of their skills; their labour market integration; their social protection; migrant workers in an irregular situation; their working conditions (particularly their wages, working time and occupational safety and health; migrant workers in the informal economy; their trade union rights; forced labour; child labour; and trafficking situations); or (ii) Fair recruitment of migrant workers (guided by the General Principles and Operational Guidelines on Fair Recruitment ).
