The Amnesty International Media Awards were established in 1992 to recognise the best in human rights journalism.
They celebrate the breadth and quality of human rights reporting across the media – including broadcast, digital and print.
Over the past two decades the awards have grown in prestige, recognising excellence in human rights reporting and acknowledging journalism’s significant contribution to raising public awareness of human rights issues.
There are 10 categories in total, including the Photojournalism category for photographers. Entrants may submit a series of up to six photographs from a single portfolio, some or all of which must have been published on a UK website or in the UK press.
Photographers have until 01 March to submit their entries online or by post. There is a reduced entry fee for images submitted before midnight on 01 February.
There are 11 categories in the awards, recognising newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, digital and student journalism. Each is judged by an independent panel.
