The Human Rights Press Awards is pleased to announce an increase in the cash prizes for the 19th annual edition of the prestigious media prize.
In December, we announced cash prizes for the first time in the Awards’ history. At the time, we said that HK $3,000 each would go to winners in five categories: English print & online, English broadcast, Chinese print & online, Chinese broadcast and Photography. Thanks to generous sponsorship, we are now increasing that amount to HK $5,000 per prize, for a total of $25,000 in prize money.
Submissions will be accepted until the deadline of this Friday, January 9, 2015. Journalistic works published or broadcast during the 2014 calendar year are eligible. Physical entry forms are available at the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents’ Club (F.C.C., 2 Lower Albert Rd, Central) or online at HumanRightsPressAwards.org.
