Young writers’ competition

for young writers (aged 18-28)

Release date: 9 December 2021

Deadline: 7 February 2022

Adamah Media is an online magazine focusing particularly on social, cultural, and spiritual topics. It seeks to be a platform where a wide range of views can be respectfully exchanged, aiming always at fairness and truth… and we’d like your view to be among those we publish!

We want to support, recognise and publish talented young adults.

So, we’re launching a competition for budding journalists and writers aged 18-28, with a cash prize and opportunities for professional development.

Prizes

Competition Submission

Write an article about the following theme:


“A better possible world”

Please note that we are looking for  thoughtful articles on specific topics, for example reports on initiatives already afoot that are helping to build a better world, or particular areas where there could be improvement and how (e.g. the environment, international relations and diplomacy, support for people/groups in need, promotion of the arts, spirituality, etc).

(1000-1500 words)

Let your creativity flow and capture our readers’ attention with interesting and engaging content … but remember, at Adamah we value well-researched opinions and balanced reflections that consider different points of view. And we always avoid polarisation. 

Please read our Editorial Guidelines before writing your article.

We suggest you also read our About Us page and First Editorial to get a feel for our approach and values. We hope to have entries from all backgrounds and we want to make sure you like our approach.

1) Fill out our submission form (any issues with this, please email tascha.von.uexkull@adamah.media)
2) Share your favourite Adamah Media post on social media
