Rory Peck Awards 2017 are Open for Entries!

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

RORY PECK AWARD FOR NEWS 
Honours the work of freelance cameramen and camerawomen in the coverage of one news event where the focus is on the immediacy of the story.

Broadcast news packages and agency feeds/un-voiced pieces are accepted in this category. Portfolio pieces and raw un-edited rushes are not accepted.
 

RORY PECK AWARD FOR NEWS FEATURES 
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 programme.
 

SONY IMPACT AWARD FOR CURRENT AFFAIRS 
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. 
Duration: up to 60 minutes

Entries will have been broadcast as stand-alone films or as one of a programme strand.
 

Across all categories the awards recognise quality of camerawork, but also take into account individual endeavour and journalistic integrity.
