THE CATEGORIES

The Journalists' Charity Wales Media Awards aim to celebrate and promote great journalism in Wales.

 

They are open to all journalists, photographers, camera operators, video journalists, freelancers, student journalists, bloggers and vloggers who work in Wales and their entries must have been produced for an audience in Wales.

 

The judges will be looking for entries which are compelling, revelatory, in the public interest, informative, exclusive, and/or entertaining, and will take into account the level of journalistic skill, professionalism and effort employed to bring new information to light, or the efforts (ethically and legally) the journalist has taken to bring their story to life.

 

Each entry will be judged on its merits regardless of the size of news organisation that produces it.

Click on the links below to see the criteria for that category. To submit an entry, click on the link at the foot of each criteria page.

 

Please ensure you read and fulfil the entry criteria published for each category you enter. It is important that you observe these rules since failure to do so may result in your entry being disqualified.
