Applications Open for Singapore Environment Council’s Asian Environmental Journalism Awards!

Deadline: 17 July 2017

The Singapore Environment Council is seeking applications for its “Asian Environmental Journalism Awards (AEJA)” in order to recognise and reward excellence in environmental journalism at all levels of society. The programme also highlights exceptional journalistic work and encourages sustained high-quality coverage of environmental issues in Asia.

From passionate citizen journalists, to outstanding professional journalists, to the environmental attitudes of overall media organisations, the AEJA highlight exceptional journalistic work, and encourage continued high-quality coverage of environmental issues in Asia.

By bringing environmental stories to the forefront of public perception, journalists play several key roles through reports on environmentally harmful practices, they serve as the watchdogs of our environment; through features on environmental champions, emerging environmental technologies and business practices, they bring inspiration and fresh ideas on environmental protection to the public. They also enrich public understanding of the environment by presenting complex scientific, technical, ecological and cultural facts about a complex issue in a simple, accessible format.
