Reporters that have covered issues related to the U.S.-Mexico border are eligible for an award.
The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) U.S.-Mexico Border Office invites journalists from both sides of the border to submit entries to this award that will recognize the best journalism ethics, which contribute to health and development of the region.
The purpose of the award is to recognize the best journalism stories that have helped emphasize the core values, welfare, quality of life and development of the border community, as well as focus on the common realities that are happening on the region.
Spanish or English stories must have been published or broadcast between May 1, 2011 and May 3, 2012.
The categories for participation are: print media, radio, TV and electronic media. Individuals or teams can participate in four different categories: independent journalists, journalists from local media including TV channels, newspapers, online newspapers, blogs, radio and media within the universities.
The three best stories in each category will be notified during the month of August 2012 and authors will be invited to a special awards ceremony.
