Amnesty International Media Awards 2012

Amnesty International are looking for powerful and thought provoking
documentaries. If you've got one, enter now and be in with a chance to win
one of their prestigious prizes.
The Amnesty Media Awards were established in 1992 to celebrate the best in
human rights journalism. From print and broadcast journalism to
photographic, film and digital content, they recognise the vital role
journalists play, and the serious risks they face, in highlighting
injustice around the world.

Documentaries provide one of the most powerful and most accessible ways to
bring complex human rights issues to a wide audience. In the documentary
category, we are looking for films of 20-120 minutes duration, broadcast
predominantly to a UK audience, or given a theatrical screening in the UK.

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