The Badminton World Federation is committed to serving members of the media and facilitating their coverage of the sport with the ultimate goal and vision of promoting the sport of badminton across the worldwide map.

BWF Media adopt a multi-platform strategy to service the media as comprehensively as possible. We have the following media channels: 



In September 2011, the BWF launched the BWF Media Prize where two “Story of the Year” (one English story and one Chinese story) and up to five meritorious prizes will be given to journalists all over the world who are able to capture in writing the OSIM BWF World Superseries competition, the drama, the emotion that bring a human touch to the sport and the series altogether.

Write a story. Tell us what you think.

The two best stories published on either the print or electronic media will each win the 2012 BWF Media Prize – a 4D3N trip to one of BWF Major Events in 2013 such as the Sudirman Cup or the World Championships which will be decided on a later date.
