The Martin Adler Prize honours a local freelance journalist or field producer whose work with international media outlets has made a significant contribution to newsgathering, either through a single story or body of work. The aim of the prize is to highlight the dedication and talent of local freelancers who often work under challenging and difficult circumstances within their own country, and who go largely unrecognised. This year the prize will focus on local freelance journalists or field producers whose work has made a valuable contribution to newsgathering.
This is a non-competitive prize, awarded by the Trustees of the Rory Peck Trust.
