VOTE FOR THE BEST "EVERY HUMAN HAS RIGHTS" AWARD WINNER

The international media development organisation Internews has announced the 30 winners of the Every Human Has Rights Media Awards, organised this year to mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Among the 30 winners, a special award will be given to the most eye-opening report (1,000 euros, US$1,560) - and you, as the public, get to decide who wins.

The winners, whose stories explicitly refer to the human rights enshrined in the declaration, will be attending the campaign celebration in Paris on 6 December, where they will receive a prize for their contribution. They will also get to meet human rights leaders, including Archibishop Desmond Tutu, chair of The Elders, a group of world leaders that tackles some of the world's biggest problems and is an avid supporter of the Every Human Has Rights campaign.

You have until midnight on 30 November 2008 to vote. Read the winning stories and cast your vote here: http://media-awards.everyhumanhasrights.org/en
