The Human Rights Press Awards, Asia’s most prestigious honours that recognise outstanding human rights reporting, have returned for the 22nd year. The closing date for entries is one week away. Apply before 9 February 2018 (next Friday).
The Human Rights Press Awards are organised by the Foreign Correspondents’ Club Hong Kong, Amnesty International and the Hong Kong Journalists Association. The awards aim to increase respect for people’s basic rights and to focus attention on threats to those freedoms.
Submissions must have been reported from the Asia region and been published or broadcast during the 2017 calendar year. Entries must be in either English or Chinese. Categories include Spot News, Features, Commentary, Multimedia, Television/Video, Radio and Photography. Winners will be announced in May 2018.
Each entry must cite the article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the work seeks to address. This landmark document, which marks its 70th anniversary next year, set out the inalienable rights to which every person is entitled. The full text is available here: www.un.org/Overview/rights.html
