Winners of contest ‘Reporting on violence against women, girls’ announced

VOV.VN - The Voice of Vietnam (VOV) and the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on January 17 announced winners of a joint contest ‘Reporting on violence against women and girls’ for media workers nationwide.

The contest, launched in early December 2021, attracted a large number of journalists and media professionals all over the country. In their works, journalists expressed their opinions and suggested media solutions to reduce gender inequality and gender-based violence.

The contest also provided journalists, media professionals and students around the world with a useful resource through the Handbook “Reporting on Gender-Based Violence Against Women and Girls”, which offers general recommendations for ethical journalistic practice in reporting on gender-based violence.

Lucila Carrassco, Representative from UNESCO Hanoi Office, highly appreciated the participation of the journalists as well as the quality of the entries, noting this evidence shows gender equality in general and gender-based violence in particular is a major social issue that requires the participation of media agencies.

Organisers presented a first prize worth VND9 million to reporter Ma Thi Thao Van from Labour and Social Affairs newspaper, a second prize worth VND7 million to reporter Bui Thuy Loan from Vietnam Law newspaper, and a third prize to reporter Nong Thi Thuy Hang from Cao Bang Province newspaper.
