The second edition of the Migration Media Award rewards 41 journalists from 18 countries for their journalistic excellence on migration in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

Held on 18th September in Carthage, under the auspices of the Government of the Republic of Tunisia, the award ceremony highlights  14 first-prize winners from 10 different countries. In the six categories of video, print, online, photo, multimedia or radio in the English, French or Arabic languages, the winning entries feature fact-based and impartial reporting on the complexity of migration, its many challenges and opportunities. The entries consist of previously published pieces, and proposals for future productions which this award scheme will fund as quality reporting is more than ever needed to improve the public’s understanding of migration.

The winners of the Migration Media Award 2018 are:

Ibrahim Mostafa, (Egypt); Anne Ilcinkas and Preethi Nallu (Lebanon); Salhi Abdellatif and Leila Beratto (Algeria); Cecile Debarge (France), Daniel Howden (Greece); Sally Hayden (Ireland), Alessandro Puglia (Italy), Jaime Alekos (Spain), Ziad AlGhandour (Syria) and Arafat AlDhib (Tunisia).

The Migration Media Award is an EU-funded journalism competition bringing together four partners based on the initiative of the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD). The programmes EUROMED Migration IV and OPEN Media Hub, funded by the EU, developed the scheme in partnership with the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) and Malta’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade Promotion.
