Last year's winner was Amy Mackinnon (above) with her article The Curious Case of John Oguchuckwu for the Glasgow Guardian:
"Human rights journalism is not an end in itself, but rather a means to an end. My sincere hope for this article was to raise the profile of the way in which John was so ceremonially stripped of his human rights. I hope that this nomination will help to raise the profile of John's case, and the plight of thousands others like him."
