Asian Environmental Journalism Awards Are Now Open! Apply Now! Deadline to Apply 14 JULY 2015!



Overview

The Singapore Environment Council's Asian Environmental Journalism Awards (AEJA) aim to recognise and reward excellence in environmental journalism at all levels of society.

From passionate citizen journalists, to outstanding professional journalists, to the environmental attitudes of overall media organisations, the AEJA highlight exceptional journalistic work, and encourage continued high-quality coverage of environmental issues in Asia.

It is beyond a doubt that the media plays a crucial role in advancing the cause of environmental protection. Journalists form an essential bridge between emerging environmental issues and all members of society, whether it is the public, policy makers, or activists.

By bringing environmental stories to the forefront of public perception, journalists play several key roles – through reports on environmentally harmful practices, they serve as the watchdogs of our environment; through features on environmental champions, emerging environmental technologies and business practices, they bring inspiration and fresh ideas on environmental protection to the public. They also enrich public understanding of the environment by presenting complex scientific, technical, ecological and cultural facts about a complex issue in a simple, accessible format.

All applicants must be citizens of an Asian country, or must have been residing in an Asian country for at least 1 year prior to 14 July 2015.

If you are interested, please read the Application Guidance Notes and apply here. Deadline to Apply 14 JULY 2015.
