HÀ NỘI A total of 10 prizes were granted to outstanding reporters on Friday at the ‘Journalism for Sustainable Development Award 2018’ awards ceremony.

The ceremony was held by the Institute for Research on Development Communication (RED), the Global Affairs Canada and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

The ‘Journalism for Sustainable Development Award 2018’ was launched five months ago, receiving more than 500 writings from 173 reporters nationwide.

Four of the winning works wrote about gender equality, another four about environmental protection and the remaining two on enterprises’ sustainable development.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Trần Nhật Minh, director of RED, said sustainable development was an urgent issue of the nation’s development.

Joining the development process was the responsibility of the whole society, he said.

“The prizes not only access media writings’ quality, but also urge the process of implementing the country’s sustainable development targets,” said Minh. — VNS
