hammond_280The Amnesty Media Awards were established in 1992 to celebrate the best in human rights journalism. From print and broadcast journalism to photographic and digital content, they recognise the vital role journalists play, and the serious risks they face, in highlighting injustice around the world.

In the photojournalism category, free to enter, Amnesty are looking for a series of up to six photographs from a portfolio, all or part of which has been published or publicly exhibited in the UK between 1 March 2011 and 29 February 2012.

Last year’s winner in this category was Robin Hammond’s story in Marie Claire magazine, If This Girl Was Raped By Soldiers (pictured above) and our own exhibition of Greg Constantine’s Kenya’s Nubians: Then & Now was one of the two other shortlisted entries.

Closing date: 1 March 2012
Closing date for reduced rate entry: 16 January 2012
