The Rory Peck Awards are the only awards in the world solely dedicated to recognising the work of freelance journalists and filmmakers worldwide.
The Rory Peck Awards highlight and celebrate the efforts of freelance journalists and filmmakers who bring us stories from around the world. Across four categories, the Awards recognise quality, creativity and impact of work, but also take into account skill, endeavour and journalistic integrity.
Deadline for entries: Monday 17th July
This Award recognises the work of freelance journalists in the video coverage of a news event where the focus is on the immediacy of the story. Agency feeds are accepted in this category.
Duration: up to 10 minutes in length
News Features Award
This Award recognises the work of freelance journalists in video news features that take a more in-depth look at a story, beyond the immediacy of the news.
Duration: up to 30 minutes in length
Martin Adler Prize
This Award honours a local freelance journalist or field producer working in any medium, whose work with international and domestic media outlets has made a significant contribution to newsgathering. The aim is to highlight the dedication and talent of local freelancers reporting in their own country who often work under challenging circumstances and who often go unrecognised.
