The Amnesty Canada Media Awards: honouring journalists for outstanding human rights reporting
The Amnesty International Canada Media Awards honour the efforts of journalists to increase Canadians' awareness and understanding of human rights issues. Now in its 18th year, these awards recognize the media’s efforts to bring awareness to international human rights issues that fall within the mission of Amnesty International.
We ask journalists to submit work in the following categories:
National print – including newspapers and national magazines
Audio/Video – television or radio news and documentaries
Local/ alternative – local and alternative newspapers and special audience magazines
Online - a journalist product for a Canadian audience, only available online from a website where journalists have originated the content, or selected and amplified it (maximum of three entries.)
