- Award for Arts & Human rights media activism, & Media can create meaningful, positive change in the worldAt Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh), we believe that media can create meaningful, positive change in the world. Our global community includes journalists, documentary filmmakers, photographers, social media specialists, gamers and more. Our common thread as a nonprofit is the desire to effect positive change through our work in media.To this end, our mission is to strengthen the role of media as agents of world benefit. We do this by inviting dialogue, encouraging reflection, giving out awards, funding scholarships, and publishing powerful stories about the media’s impact.
To us, positive change is about focusing on the world we want to live in – not only problem solving the world we have. It’s not about glossing difficult truths. It’s about amplifying the best in human nature and whenever possible shining a light on the steps we can take towards the future we want.
