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.
Of course, this year’s been a little different – traditionally held in front of a live audience, we needed to create an engaging online ceremony in its place!
On the evening of Wednesday 30th September, guests were invited to attend the event via an online platform, with the 2020 awards virtually presented by a number of high profile journalists who were also judges of the awards, including BBC News’s Tina Daheley, Channel 4 Unreported World presenter Seyi Rhodes, VICE UK’s Zing Tsjeng and BBC News’s Clive Myrie.
With an embedded Twitter feed on the night, and continued access to the full ceremony and individual categories, this year’s event was opened up to a whole new audience that have never before experienced these awards that celebrate excellence in human rights journalism, and applaud the courage and determination of journalists and editors who put their lives on the line to tell important human rights stories.
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.
