About the Award

WASH Media Awards recognize and support the crucial role of the media in raising awareness of the importance of water, sanitation, and hygiene services (WASH).

The award aims to help improve access to water and sanitation services by having a positive influence on politicians, business persons, civil society representatives, and individual citizens.

SIWI seeks to use the WASH Media Awards to foster sustainable relations with journalists in developing and developed nations, and increasing media coverage of WASH issues.

Themes
Journalists may submit a piece within the following themes:

• Water and Energy
• Equity and Inclusion in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
• Ending Open Defecation
• The Human Right to Water and Sanitation
• WASH in the Future: The Post-2015 Development Agenda
• Monitoring WASH Commitments

(WASH Media Awards is a biannual award, which means that the next edition will be in 2016. Submission will probably open in the beginning of that year.)
