Record number of Human Rights Press Awards entries this year, say organisers

More than 20 experts in media and human rights attended a weekend judging session at the FCC to fine tune the scoring logged during a month’s review of the entries to the 22nd Human Rights Press Awards.

Judges were evaluating what was a record number of entries – up 28 percent with 414 stories, photos, commentaries, videos, multimedia and radio pieces submitted.

“Best slate of entries in years, highlighting the disturbingly widening range of human rights abuses from religious intolerance in Pakistan to the award-winning Rohingya and China surveillance stories,” said one judge.

The winners are now being tallied and will be announced at the May 12 awards ceremony.
