WINNERS OF 2020 HUMAN RIGHTS PRESS AWARDS ANNOUNCED


HONG KONG, May 6, 2020 — In a year of protests in Hong Kong, a sudden lockdown in Kashmir and government crackdowns on “fake news,” the winning entries in the Human Rights Press Awards (HRPA) showcase tenacity and creativity of journalistic story-telling about human rights in Asia.

A deep dive by The Washington Post into police conduct during Hong Kong’s months-long demonstrations, titled “In Hong Kong Crackdown, Police Repeatedly Broke Their Own Rules — and Faced No Consequences”, won the English-language Investigative Feature Writing award.

“This is arguably, from a human rights perspective, one of the most important journalistic pieces to come out of the protests,” the panel of judges said of the multimedia story.

Stand News was awarded the best Explanatory Chinese Feature Writing for its micro analysis of the clash between police and protesters on June 12, 2019. The clash is considered a watershed of the anti-extradition bill movement. In recommending this article, the judge panel said: “This montage of facts goes beyond a reconstruction of the important day. It tells the inevitability and accidentality of history.”

Now in the 24th year, the HRPA is Asia’s most prestigious celebration of journalism that raises awareness of human rights issues and shines a light on threats to freedom.

There were a record 488 submissions in all formats, driven by a big jump in the number of photographic entries, which more than doubled in the past year.

The winning entries included The Guardian’s on-the-ground video coverage from Kashmir and a BBC documentary, “Inside China’s Camps”, providing a powerful account of the situation in Xinjiang, where journalists’ work is often impeded by authorities.

Reports on overcrowding in Philippine jails, India’s citizenship drive in Assam and an interview with the wife of Chinese rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong were among the winners and runners-up in 22 categories.

A team of nine reporters from the Wall Street Journal won the Breaking News Writing award for what the judges called their “comprehensive and sweeping narrative” of the events of October 1 in the Hong Kong protests.

The Chinese-language winners also featured dynamic storytelling from the most dramatic moments of the protests.

RTHK’s radio report on “The Exodus from Polytechnic University” took the Audio prize and Stand News won the Breaking News Writing award for its account of the Yuen Long mob attack.

The People’s Choice Award received an astounding 47,451 online votes, with the public choosing their favorite photo from a selection of six outstanding images. The winning shot, by Lai Chun Kit for Ming Pao, showed a protester using a mattress from a dormitory to shield himself during clashes with police at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

HRPA is organised by the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Hong Kong, Amnesty International Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Journalists Association.

The 2020 awards ceremony has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. All the prize-winning photographs, including runners-up, will be displayed at the Hong Kong FCC and are open to public viewing.

2020年人權新聞獎公佈結果

新聞稿


香港,2020年5月6日 — 過去一年,香港的「反送中」示威運動、喀什米爾突然封鎖以及各地政府對「假新聞」的鎮壓等事件舉世矚目,今屆人權新聞獎的獲獎作品,正正展現了亞洲人權新聞報導的堅韌性和創造力。

其中《華盛頓郵報》的「鎮壓:香港警察一再違規 卻毋需面對後果」的報導,在為期數月的香港示威運動中,深入探究警方的行為操守,榮獲調查專題(英文)的大獎。評審認為:「從人權角度而言,這可以說是香港示威活動中,最重要的新聞作品之一。」

《立場新聞》的「612 再定性:事件是如何發生的?」的報導,則從微觀角度,展示對香港反修例運動有根本性影響的612警民衝突之來龍去脈,榮獲解釋性特寫(中文)的大獎。評審讚賞:「以蒙太奇手法,重塑612的事發經過,讓讀者看到歷史的偶然和必然。」

查看完整的得獎名單

人權新聞獎今年踏入第24屆,一直致力提高人們對人權及自由的關注,是亞洲享負盛名的新聞界盛事。今屆我們共收到488份參賽作品,數目為歷年之冠,當中攝影作品大幅增加,較去年增幅超過一倍。

今屆獲獎的英文作品包括來自《衛報》於喀什米爾的實地採訪報導以及由英國廣播公司製作的紀錄片《中國集中營內》。雖然傳媒工作者於新疆採訪屢遭阻撓,這輯紀錄片仍能全面且有力地揭示新疆的狀況。

今屆人權新聞獎一共22個組別,得獎作品題材廣泛,包括報導菲律賓監獄人滿為患,阿薩姆人被印度刪除國籍,以及中國維權律師江天勇妻子的專訪等。

《華爾街日報》的九人記者團隊奪得突發新聞(英文)組別的大獎。評審認為作品全面記錄去年10月1日在香港發生的衝突事件。

中文組別方面,香港電台的「出理大記」以聲音記錄香港多月示威以來最轟烈的時刻,奪得電台廣播和錄音大獎;立場新聞則以元朗白衣人襲擊報導贏得突發新聞大獎。

今年我們再度舉辦「一人一票最佳新聞圖片獎」,讓公眾從六張優秀的新聞圖片選出心頭好,投票期內一共收到47,451票,大獎最終由作品「床墊作盾」奪得。作品由《明報》的賴俊傑拍攝,相片捕捉了示威者與防暴警在香港中文大學對峙時,示威者用床墊掩護的瞬間。

人權新聞獎由香港外國記者會、國際特赦組織香港分會及香港記者協會合辦。因應新型冠狀病毒疫情持續,2020年人權新聞獎頒獎禮將延期舉行。所有獲獎攝影作品將於香港外國記者會公開展出。
