Young and inspired writers, bloggers, journalists, musicians, and others who have a story to tell about climate change are invited to enter the Earth Journalism Awards Competition. Internews has created the MTV Positive Change award for youth aged 18-28. Submissions may be made in any format or mix of formats, including video, audio, photography, script, or music, and should express how society is adapting, or needs to adapt, to the threat of climate change. Entries will be accepted until September 7, 2009.
Internews' Earth Journalism Awards Competition is designed to promote high quality, local coverage of climate change, leading up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference, December 7-18, 2009, in Copenhagen (COP15). At COP15, nations of the world are scheduled to conclude negotiations on the future of the Kyoto Protocol. Award winners will be honoured at a high-profile awards ceremony at COP15 and will get the opportunity to cover the negotiations.
