Human rights take centre stage

The Amnesty International Media Awards were held on 17 June at a ceremony in London, hosted by Moira Stuart.

This is the 17th year of the annual awards which acknowledge journalists’ contribution and commitment to raising the profile of human rights issues.

There were two new categories this year, covering new media and international television and radio.

The new media award was posthumously awarded to Iraqi journalist Sahar al-Haideri, who was shot dead only weeks after her article ‘Honour killing sparks fears of new Iraqi conflict”, was published online.
