Call for entries: Red Cross Award for Humanitarian Reporting 2013

Journalists covering humanitarian situations in the Philippines are invited to submit entries for the Red Cross Award for Humanitarian Reporting 2013.

Organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross, in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross and four other organizations, the award aims to recognize stories and images that provide excellent insight into and responsibly depict the consequences of armed conflict and armed violence on civilians.

Professional or freelance journalists or photojournalists working for print, online, radio and television outfits may send published or aired materials: news reports, features, documentaries or photographs.

Entries must highlight the humanitarian consequences of armed conflicts or other large-scale situations of violence for affected populations and how respect for humanitarian law is promoted.

Entries must be published or aired between May 1, 2012 and May 1, 2013. The deadline of submission is on May 31, 2013.

Awardees will be given plaques, trophies, trainings on conflict reporting and news safety, gadgets and other freebies. Winners will be announced on International Humanitarian Law Day, August 12, 2013.

Contest partners include the International News Safety Institute (Asia-Pacific office), The Peace and Conflict Journalism Network, the Philippine Center for Photojournalism and the Rotary Club of Manila.
