Established in 1995, the Awards highlight the significant contribution of freelance journalists to the international media industry and celebrate the most outstanding work​ produced each year.

For nearly 30 years, the Rory Peck Awards have recognised the talent and dedication of freelance journalists and filmmakers working in news and current affairs worldwide. It is one of the only Awards in the world to exclusively highlight the work of freelancers.

Their work shines a light on the impact of conflict, oppression and climate change around the world through powerful and revealing footage from Ukraine to Madagascar, Mexico to India.

The 2024 Rory Peck Awards are now closed for entries.
