The Mobile Journalism Awards competition recognizes the best in mobile journalism storytelling.

Why are these awards important?
Journalism is a cornerstone of free speech and a strong defender of democratic ideals.
By raising the standards for mobile journalism and hosting public screenings, journalists can show the impact of non-fiction storytelling in the form of mobile journalism.
