ILO accepting entries for 2017 media competition

ISLAMABAD: The International Labour Organization (ILO) is accepting entries for its 2017 Global Media Competition.

Professional journalists are invited to submit articles or videos/multimedia to this contest.

The contest aims to show the positive results of good labor migration governance while not overlooking the negative aspects (e.g. often a hard reality of exploitation and violation of human and labor rights), and highlight the positive contribution of migrant workers to countries of origin, transit and destination, said a press release on Friday.

There are two thematic areas: labor migration aspects and fair recruitment of migrant workers. The categories are written articles and videos/photos/audio.

Articles should not exceed 8,000 words and videos/audio should not be longer than 10 minutes.

Entries in other languages than English, French and Spanish must include a translation.

Four winners will receive US$1,000 each and the deadline is October 27.
