The first ISMAs were presented at Safety 2006 in Durban, South Africa. Since then, hundreds of safety promoters have been honored for their safety media by an international panel of judges.

Winners of the 2018 awards were announced in Bangkok, Thailand at the 13th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion. It was a challenging year for the judges, as the quality of entries and methodologies for evaluating  media impacts have continued to grow. 

Thank you to everyone who has submitted their media over the years. We look forward to continuing to learn from the evolution of the art and science of injury prevention and safety promotion through media.
