Entries are now closed for the 2015 Amnesty International Australia Media Awards.
Journalists and their producers and editors are encouraged to nominate stories broadcast or published between 1 August 2014 and 1 August 2015.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Sydney on 10 November.
A selection of esteemed Australian journalists are judging this year's awards. A panel of three will judge each of the six categories: print and online media, radio, television, photography, Indigenous media and cartoon.
Hosted by columnist and news anchor, Tracey Spicer, the event brought together a packed room of leading Australian journalists and media industry representatives.
Each year, the Media Awards recognises a case in crisis and the importance of a free press. The 2014 ceremony highlighted the plight of three media workers who were imprisoned in Egypt at the time: Australian journalist Peter Greste and his Al Jazeera colleagues Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed.
