The Earth Journalism Awards , which I blogged about earlier with a call to cast your vote for thebest story for Copenhagen , are being given out tonight to honor the world’s best climate change reporting.
The awards ceremony (you can watch the live webcast ) will take place at 7 p.m. Copenhagen time, today, December 14th (1 p.m. New York). The ceremony will feature Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, IPCC Chair and Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary, UNFCCC.
About 450 submissions were received from professional and citizen journalists from more than 100 countries. The list is now down to 15 finalists from 10 countries, so stay tuned for the ceremony!
The awards are organized by Internews and sponsored by various partners, including the World Bank.
