About

Media Awards

Each year since 1979, the United Nations Association of Australia has acknowledged UN Day (24 October) by awarding Australia journalists and media organisations who have excelled in their promotion of human rights and issues.

The UN Day Media Awards seek to promote understanding about humanitarian and social justice issues by recognising those in the Australian media whose contributions stimulate public awareness and understanding. The UN Day Media Awards are a key feature of the UNAA’s work to promote achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each category addresses one or more of the Goals.

Entries for the 2018 Awards will open on 2 July 2018. Winners will be announced on 26 October at a presentation dinner.
