The Open Media Hub project, led by the Thomson Foundation with Action Global Communications as one of the partners and funded by the European Union, recently supported the 2018 Migration Media Awards (MMA). The MMA focuses on media and migration issues in the Euro-Mediterranean region covering six different categories: video, radio, online, print, multimedia and photo. Forty-one journalists from 18 countries were recognised for their journalistic excellence in covering migration in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The aim is to provide information on the subject of migration based on unbiased, objective facts. This year, the awards took place in Carthage, under the auspices of the Government of the Republic of Tunisia. David Quin, Director of Development of Thomson Foundation, said: “The MMA acknowledges the best, and often bravest, in migration coverage from across the spectrum. Journalists covering not just crisis but context, human faces behind statistics, challenges to communities”.
