Freelance camera operators may apply now for Rory Peck Awards

Freelance cameramen and women from around the world are invited to submit entries for the 2012 Rory Peck Awards, which honour the best freelance footage in news and current affairs, especially in regions where it is difficult to gather news. The closing date for entries is 11 June 2012.

Awards will be given in three categories: best coverage of on-the-day news, best feature, and best humanitarian footage that has had an international impact or contributed to a change in perception or policy (the Sony Impact Award).
