Amnesty Media Awards

We have had the privilege of working with the fantastic Amnesty International UK team on all aspects of this prestigious awards ceremony since 2015.

From handling the initial call for entries and the development of the awards website to taking online entries and managing the judging process. We are also responsible for creating the ceremony showreel, drafting the script and overseeing production on the night.

Traditionally held in front of a live audience, during Covid we needed to create engaging online ceremonies instead!

During Covid the 2021 awards, were streamed live via the Amnesty Media Awards website. The winners were revealed live and all were able to accept the awards remotely as they were announced.  2022 saw our first Hybrid event with the awards ceremony being held live and also simultaneously live streamed.

Hosted by BBC’s Maryam Moshiri, Amnesty Media Awards 2023 were held in April at Amnesty International’s UK headquarters and simultaneously live streamed.  Celebrating the best human rights journalism published and broadcast over the past year across 11 categories, including investigations, broadcast news, features, photojournalism, student media, radio and podcasts, and best use of digital media.

With continued access to the ceremony recordings, awards have now been opened up to a whole new audience.

Keystone are a dream to work with – they make delivering a big event seem easy. The team are absolutely lovely and their professionalism means everything is finished to a high standard.
