Amnesty International Media Awards Seeking Photojournalists

Human rights group Amnesty International is seeking talented photojournalists! The organization is seeking entries that help bring human rights issues to light by putting a ‘human face’ to them.

The Amnesty International Media Awards 2013 is open for contest entries, and features a photojournalism category. The 10 other categories include digital innovation, national newspapers and magazines.

Photographers interested in the contest can submit up to 6 photos in a series, and can have more than one entry. Though photo entries must have been published “online or in print by a third party on a UK website, in print media aimed at a UK audience, or publicly exhibited in the UK,” in order to be qualified.

Last year’s photojournalism award was granted to by Mary Turner, who submitted her series ‘A Place to Stay- Dale Farm‘. The photos tell the stories of Irish Travellers living on a scrapyard, and the eviction they had to face together.
