Established in 1995, the Rory Peck Awards demonstrate why freelancers deserve support and recognition.
About the Awards.
The Rory Peck Awards uniquely celebrate the work of freelance journalists working in news and current affairs worldwide. These are the freelance videojournalists, filmmakers and camera operators who contribute so much to today’s international newsgathering and to our understanding of the world.
This year’s winners were revealed at London’s BFI on Thursday 7 November during a moving ceremony, showcasing the incredible range of work made by our finalists. They shared stories from the streets of Nicaragua to the fields of Paraguay, from a hospital in Sierra Leone to the frontline in Syria, bringing us work that was eye-opening and shocking.
Next year’s Awards will open for entries in April 2020.
