2018 HUMAN RIGHTS PRESS AWARDS Open for Entries on January 1, 2018

Asia’s most prestigious honours that recognise outstanding human rights reporting will be open for entries from 1 January 2018 to 9 February 2018.

The Human Rights Press Awards, now in their 22nd year, 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, Multimedia, Television/Video, Radio and Photography.

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

Please mark your calendars and be ready to submit your work!

The online entry form will be open on 1 January 2018 at: https://humanrightspress.awardsplatform.com/
