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 working in news and current affairs worldwide.

Freelance reporters, filmmakers, photojournalists and camera operators play a vital role in bringing us stories that might otherwise go unreported – and help protect our democratic freedoms by keeping independent journalism alive.

The call for entries for the 2023 Awards is now closed. Please check back for updates on finalists in October 2023.
