Applications are open for the WHO Violence Against Children Reporting Contest 2022. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) are conducting a Violence Against Children reporting contest to raise awareness and spur dialogue around critical – yet underreported – issues of violence against children around the world.

Despite its scale and impact, violence against children is rarely covered in the media outside of one-off stories around specific incidents. Little attention is given to its direct impact on families and children, much less, its toll on socioeconomic development and public health. Violence prevention efforts, which require societal and political buy-in, also receive little coverage. Journalists thus play a key role in amplifying violence prevention issues that garner the attention of the public and policymakers.
