The Global Media and WPS Award promotes and recognizes journalists and other media practitioners whose work contributes to the implementation of UNSCR 1325 on WPS. The award will provide greater visibility to the winning articles from each country, highlighting the importance of women in building and sustaining peace. It will also spotlight women’s roles as leaders, peacebuilders, and decision-makers, especially in the context of COVID-19 prevention and recovery. The Global Media and WPS Award will also serve as an encouragement for other journalists from different parts of the world to develop engaging stories to promote the implementation of WPS and women’s leadership in building and sustaining peace.
