ethical reporting on children and child rights
*BELGRADE, 20 November 2007* - In celebration of the 18th anniversary of
the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), UNICEF Office in Serbia
today conferred the annual media prize for quality and ethical reporting
on children and child rights.
The prize was established in 2004, on the occasion of the 15th
anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the
Child. The prize recognises the efforts of electronic and print media
in pursuing better news coverage of children's issues. The underlying
principle of the award is that enhanced awareness of the practices
already operating and those in the launching stage will help to make
practical, tangible progress for children in Serbia.
This year, there were 40 entries by 20 journalists from print and
electronic media (radio and television).
