German Development Media Awards presented
At a presentation in Berlin, seven journalists have been honoured with the German Development Media Award for their excellent work in the field of human rights and development. This prize is awarded jointly by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Deutsche Welle (DW).
The German Development Media Awards honor journalists who retain their independence, take on topics related to human rights and expose problems that usually are hardly covered or not covered at all by the media. They recognize courage and dedication and honor the people who advocate respecting and protecting human rights and who remind us that access to education and equal opportunities are universal rights.

In commemoration of 40 years of German unity, the German Embassy brought a "Buddy Bear" from Berlin to Bahrain last year.
The first Buddy Bears -- very similar to the decorated sculptures of camels placed around Bahrain as part of the nationwide "Wehda Wahda" campaign - were presented in the streets of Berlin in 2001. Now the United Buddy Bears - an international art exhibition with more than 140 bears - promote peace, international understanding and tolerance among nations, cultures and religions all over the world.
In close collaboration with the University College of Bahrain's Graphic Design Department, a competition was held and the design of artist Ahmed Tael Daher was chosen for the Kingdom's version of the Buddy Bear combining German and Bahraini elements. The Buddy Bear was presented to the public during a ceremony held at the German Embassy on 3 April, 2013 by H.E. Ambassador Sabine Taufmann in the presence of MP Dr. Jamal Saleh, the President of the Bahraini -German Society Mr. Tareq Wafa and other representatives of Bahraini ministries and authorities as well as German language students.
