We are delighted to announce that the Human Rights Press Awards, Asia’s most prestigious honours that recognise outstanding human rights reporting, have returned and are now open for entries. The deadline is February 1, 2022 (11:59 PM, HKT).
The Human Rights Press Awards, now in their 26th year, are organised by the Foreign Correspondents’ Club Hong Kong
Showcasing this work has become more important than ever as governments around the region step up threats to basic freedoms since the pandemic broke out. This has ranged from locking up journalists, carrying out arbitrary detentions to silencing political opponents.
Submissions must have been reporting about the Asia region and been published or broadcast during the 2021 calendar year. Entries must be in either English or Chinese.
Categories include Breaking News, Feature, Multimedia, Video and Photography. Please go to the website for more details.
Each entry must cite the article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the work seeks to address. This landmark document sets out the inalienable rights to which every person is entitled. The full text is available here.
Entry registration can be found here.
