      Global Award

      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


      Eligibility
      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.

      Submitting entries

      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.

      Judging
      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.

      How to enter
      Entries should be sent by the relevant human rights organisation to:

      or by e-mail to: annabel.harris@...

      Entries should include a copy of the article in its original published form
      or, if sent by e-mail, should contain precise details of publication. Copies
      of the original published article will be required for all shortlisted
      entries.
