The Impact Award

The Amnesty International Media Awards recognise excellence in human rights reporting and acknowledge journalism’s significant contribution to the UK public’s awareness and understanding of human rights issues.

This year we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of our coveted Media Awards. The last 25 years have seen momentous world events, and a number of incredible journalists have consistently reported from some of the world’s most dangerous situations, putting themselves in jeopardy to reveal atrocities and uncover corruption.
