“The work of this year’s Rory Peck Awards finalists show us that brave and truthful journalism is being produced by freelancers across the world and across platforms. As journalism comes under increasing attack, freelancers are always the most vulnerable, especially those with cameras. Many of this year’s finalists have overcome enormous pressures to bring important stories to our attention. Without them our knowledge of what’s happening in the world suffers.”
