The closing date for nominations is 1 March 2003
Amnesty International would like to invite entries for the
Global Award for Human Rights Journalism 2003.
This award, which is for non-UK media, recognises excellence in human rights
journalism in the written media internationally. It is made for an article
that has raised awareness and understanding of human rights issues, whether
at a local, national or international level, within the areas covered by
Amnesty International's vision and mission.
In making this award, Amnesty International does not necessarily endorse the
substance, methods or opinions of the shortlisted and winning entrants.
Information about the Media Awards 2003 for UK based media is available here
Entries must have been originally published between 31 March 2002 and 28
February 2003. All entries must take the form of a single written article,
whether published in a newspaper, journal, magazine or other print media, or
on the internet. The closing date for nominations is 1 March 2003.
All entries must be nominated by, and submitted through, a non-governmental
organisation (NGO), whether local, national or international. Entries can
not be accepted directly from individual journalists, newspapers or other
media. Each NGO can nominate a maximum of three entries each. Articles
entered can be in any language, but must be accompanied by an English
translation. It is the responsibility of those submitting articles to inform
the authors that they are doing so.
Entries will initially be assessed by an internal panel at Amnesty
International, to ensure that they fulfil the criteria of the Award. They
will then be sent to an international panel of judges who will select a
shortlist and winner. The final award will be announced at the Amnesty
International Media Awards in London on 22 May 2003.
