Voiceless, the animal protection institute, has launched the Voiceless Media Prize. The $5,000 prize will recognise the most valuable contribution towards debate on the treatment of animals. “Animal protection is becoming the next great social justice movement in Australia,” according to Ondine Sherman, co-founder of Voiceless.
The prize is open to journalists - for a story published in newspapers, magazines, television, radio or online - addressing one of the following subjects: factory farming; live exports; kangaroo culling; animal hunting and poisoning; animal experimentation; animals in entertainment (zoos, circuses and rodeos) or animals killed for fur and skin. Alternatively it could examine the ethical relationship between human and animals, or the sentience of animals.
Eligibility criteria and entry details can be obtained at www.voiceless.org.au.
