Amnesty International’s journalism awards open for entry

Amnesty International has launched its annual Media Awards to find the best human rights journalists in the industry.

The awards are in their 20th year and aim to recognise the breadth and quality of human rights reporting across newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, digital and student journalism.

Judges for the awards are selected from the media, arts and entertainment industries, NGO sector, academia and the legal profession.

Senior staff at Amnesty International also take part in the judging but have no casting vote or additional influence over the choice of winners.

The three shortlisted entries in each category will be announced at the beginning of May and winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 29 May. 

Closing date for entries is 1 March. Enter online here.
