Internews is inviting mainstream and citizen journalists from around the world to participate in its Human Rights Media competition by submitting world and current affairs reports that have been published after the 15th of September 2007 and which could be used to illustrate one or several articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in a context that is relevant to the issues facing our world today.
