We are pleased to announce that articles featured in October's issue of New Internationalist ‘Nature's defenders: can indigenous people save the planet?’ have been shortlisted for the Amnesty Media Awards.
The features – ‘At your peril’, ‘Meet the defenders‘ and ‘¡Agro si! ¡Mina no!’ – involved co-editor Vanessa Baird travelling to Peru and meeting the communities taking on governments and corporations.
Amnesty’s Media Awards, now in their 21st year, recognize excellence in human rights reporting and acknowledge journalism’s significant contribution to the UK public’s awareness and understanding of human rights issues.
The winners will be announced in a ceremony at the BFI in central London on Tuesday 29 May.
Good luck Vanessa!
