Freelance videojournalists who cover international news and current affairs can apply for an award.

The Rory Peck Awards, organized by the Rory Peck Trust, aim at honoring freelance cameramen and camerawomen. The Rory Peck Trust was established in 1995, two years after freelance cameraman Rory Peck was killed while filming in Moscow.

There are three awards: news, features and the Sony Professional Impact Award for Current Affairs.

In all categories, the awards recognize the quality of camerawork, but also take into account individual endeavor, initiative and journalistic ability.

Entries must have been broadcast (television, agency feed, recognized online news publisher) between July 1,  2017 and May 31, 2018. Works not in English must be accompanied by a detailed storyline and translation.

The application deadline is June 6.
