Asia Pacific MDG Media Awards

The Asia-Pacific MDGs Media Awards honor distinguished reporting on the Millennium Development Goals by producers and journalists in print, radio and television covering the Asia-Pacific region.
The MDGs form a human development blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. There are eight goals, all with time-bound targets to be achieved by the year 2015. The MDGs represent a vision of a better world with less poverty, universal primary education, gender equality, healthy mothers and children, a world no longer threatened by the HIV/AIDS pandemic and dwindling environmental resources.
The Awards aim to generate better awareness and understanding of the MDGs in Asia-Pacific, and motivate journalists from the region to cover stories on how MDGs are being pursued in the region. It is also hoped that media will be stimulated, through the Awards, to become a driving force in accelerating national action toward achieving the MDGs.
