UPDATE: Mongabay Latam has now been named a finalist for the award. Congratulations to the whole team.
Mongabay Latam has been named to the longlist in the Special Award category of the One World Media Awards, for its environmental coverage in Latin America. This award recognizes an independent media organization based in a developing country using media to address social, cultural, political and economic issues. The Award seeks to recognize and encourage outstanding reporting that informs the public, provides an outlet for local people’s voices, creates a space for critical information, and holds those in power to account. Other nominees include Myanmar Now (Myanmar), Nasha Niva (Belarus), and Reporter At-Large (India).
The judging panels will meet in late April to decide the final nominees in each category.
