PeaceJam Foundation, an award-winning peace education programme that has embraced more than 1.2 million young people, from 40 countries around the world, has just announced an impressive panel for the Second Annual PeaceJam Special Jury Prize at the Monte Carlo Television Festival.
The purpose of the award, which will be given on June 19, is to recognise outstanding Television Films that embody the spirit of the Nobel Peace Prize. It is thus fitting that Nobel Peace Prize Winner Betty Williams will present this award.
The panel will assemble ten distinguished international personalities tasked with choosing the best entry.

The Peacejam Special Jury Prize adds a unique new humanitarian component to the Television Festival. Participation is open to all public and private television organisations, as well as to institutions that devote themselves to public understanding. To be considered for the Special Jury Prize, submissions should be made for television broadcast but not necessarily limited to television distribution.
