A National Awards Program

UN Day Media Awards 2018

About the awards

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

The UNAA 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 SDGs.
