10th ANNUAL MEDIA AWARDS: WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The awards, made at a ceremony at BAFTA in London on the evening of Tuesday 10 July - and this year hosted by Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, recognise excellence in human rights journalism.

Amnesty International UK Communications Director Richard Bunting said:

'The vital contribution of journalists in reporting human rights abuses all over the world has once again been recognised and honoured in these awards.

'Without the powerful and often difficult journalism of these award-winners the world would know less about human rights abuse, perpetrators might stand to walk free and victims only seek justice in vain. The journalist's role is enormously important.'
