BeFM Wins Bronze Medal For Human Rights Documentary in New York

BeFM received the bronze medal in the Human Rights documentary category at the New York Festivals 2019 Radio Awards, held in New York City on June 24th.

The winning documentary, “Eun-su’s 17 lost years”, addresses human rights issues of young children with no record of birth.

It reports on domestic as well as international cases including European countries such as the UK and Germany.

The work calls on society’s responsibility to uphold the basic human rights of unregistered children.

Director Yoo Jeong-im said she wanted to explore the human rights of children like Eunsu (alias) who has lived without declaring birth for 17 years,

She hopes to take the initiative to establish a system where the lives of children are treated fairly and not overlooked.

BeFM’s special documentary also won the gold prize at the 2018 New York Radio Festival.

Produced by Shin Mi-kyung, written by Park Mi-ra, and translated by Catherine Bang, the documentary called “Teaching the Unseen World in English”, won the Gold Radio Winner award in the documentary and education section.
