that we’ve been nominated for an Amnesty International Media Award for our work on the aftermath of Kenya’s post election violence.
The awards, designed to recognise ‘excellence in human rights reporting’, feature just ten categories spread across print, broadcast and online journalism. Other nominees include the BBC, CNN, The Guardian, Channel 4 News and The Times, as well as Lefteris Pitarakis, Eugene Richards and Jim Goldberg in the photography category.
There will be a do at the British Film Institute on June the 2nd where you’ll be able to see Benjamin and David in lounge suits. Come to think of it, just what on earth is a lounge suit and where do you get one from?
Sadly we won’t be joined by the rest of the team who worked on the entry. Amazingly we are drawn from five continents. Dolphine Emali (Africa) Yasuyoshi Chiba (Asia) Eliza Barclay (America) Jack Picone (Australasia) and duckrabbit (Europe)
You can see our entry here.
duckrabbit would like to point out that there are tens of thousands of displaced people in Kenya, almost eighteen months on from the post election violence. Our hearts go out not just to them, but all the people who live in fear and threat of violence.
