Since the launch of the Awards in 1998, 32 reporters have been recognised for outstanding environmental journalism by the Global Master Jury chaired by Her Majesty Queen Noor, IUCN Patron.

One winner from six regions - Latin America; North America, including the Caribbean and Oceania; Europe; Asia; English-speaking Africa, including the Middle East and French-speaking Africa will be invited to attend the Global Awards Ceremony taking place in Bangkok, Thailand, in November 2004.
