The ACCER Awards 2020 is the fifth in a series, and comes at a time uncertainty abounds regarding climate action in the context of Covid-19 crisis. Journalists and media networks remain important actors in unpacking and building the synergy for the two crises, making a compelling case for them to be tackled simultaneously. This year's theme is “Making climate action a way of life.” Deadline is Sep 30, 2020.

Winning and shortlisted contesters will be invited to The ACCER Awards Finalists Academy (TAAFA) to be held at the venue of the ACCER Awards Gala Night that will be announced in due course. A cash prize of $1,000 awaits the overall winner, with more opportunities to travel to international events, as per PACJA’s discretion. The shortlisted candidates will also get free return tickets to the event.
