The Developing Asia Journalism Awards (DAJA) is taking submissions of articles by journalists working in developing Asia and the Pacific. This year the theme will focus on a critical question facing Asia and the Pacific: “Green Growth – or Growth versus Green?” The deadline for submissions is Aug. 31.
Possible topic areas include issues such as climate change (droughts, flooding, sea-level rise, etc.); energy use/efficiency; renewable energy; water, waste, and forest management; sustainable transport; pollution; urban development; and others.
The panel of judges will select 25 finalists. Cash prizes will be awarded to one Winner, one First Runner-up, one Second Runner-up and one Young Development Journalist of the Year (under age 30 as of 31 August 2012). All finalists will be invited to the Asian Development Bank Institute in Tokyo in November 2012 for a special DAJA forum and awards ceremony.
