One World Media is a non-profit organization founded over 30 years ago by a group of journalists who were set out to encourage and celebrate more and better-quality reporting from the global south. The founders recognized international reporting at that time was limited and often reinforced stereotypes.
One World Media supports journalists and filmmakers globally to tell stories that inform and connect all. It seeks out champions and aspiring filmmakers and journalists covering underreported stories and builds connections between emerging and established players in the media and international development sector.
