MANI TESE AWARD FOR INVESTIGATIVE AND SOCIAL JOURNALISM
The MANI TESE AWARD FOR INVESTIGATIVE AND SOCIAL JOURNALISM intends to support the production of original investigations on issues concerning the impact of business activity on human rights and the environment in Italy and/or in third countries in which the global production chains are structured. The aim of the Prize is to bring to light facts and stories of public interest that are still little known and/or debated so far, with a slant both of denunciation and proposal.
The Award is part of the Mani Tese MADE IN JUSTICE program and is part of the "Change FASHION! From fast fashion to a transparent and sustainable textile industry", created with the contribution of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS).
The theme of the 2nd Edition of the Award is the impact of the clothing industry on human rights and the environment, in Italy and/or in third countries in which the global textile supply chain is structured.
The choice of the format of the investigation (articles, photo reports, videos, web-docs, web series, graphic novels, etc.) is free.
Participation is open to independent/freelance journalists, including those not members of the Order of Journalists and non-publicists of all ages and nationalities.
The award consists of a contribution to cover the costs of carrying out the investigation up to a maximum of 10,000 euros.
Composed of journalists and/or industry experts, the jury will select 5 finalist projects from a shortlist drawn up by the Technical Commission, which will be announced and invited to present their projects during the awards event.
