Awards 2015 - OPEN FOR ENTRIES!

The only awards dedicated to the work of freelance cameramen and camerawomen in news and current affairs are NOW OPEN!   

And this year there are changes to categories, including durations. Entries from freelancers worldwide are invited for the following:
 
  • Rory Peck Award for News. This award honours the work of freelance cameramen and camerawomen in the coverage of a news event where the focus is on the immediacy of the story. Online and broadcast news packages or agency rushes/un-voiced pieces are accepted in this category.  Duration: up to 10 minutes
  • Rory Peck Award for News Features. This award honours the work of freelance cameramen and camerawomen in news features that look beyond the immediacy of the news. Entries will have been broadcast within an online news platform, broadcast news programme or current affairs magazine programmeDuration: up to 20 minutes
  • Sony Impact Award for Current Affairs. This award honours the work of freelance cameramen and camerawomen in long-form current affairs that examines a single issue, story or situation, and makes an impact on the viewer. Entries will  have been broadcast as stand-alone films or features, or as one of a strand.  Duration: 20 to 60 minutes
In all categories the awards recognise quality of camerawork, but also take into account individual endeavour, initiative and journalistic ability.

Entries must have had their first broadcast (television, agency feed, recognised online news publisher) between 1 JUNE 2014 and 31 MAY 2015.

We welcome self-funded work and entries from local freelancers, especially those living and working in regions where it is difficult to operate.
