Human Rights Awards | New online digest and database


In order to assist human rights defenders and their supporters in accessing the growing number of human rights awards, True Heroes Films (THF) has launched an online digest of international and regional human rights awards.

The Digest of Human Rights Awards is an online searchable database hosted on True Heroes Films’ website It allows anyone to find out information about the various awards and also helps human rights defenders and their supporters quickly find the right award for them.

Users can search the awards by theme, geographical focus, whether they accept public nominations as well as other information such as the deadline for submissions. The Digest is accessible on any device including mobiles and tablets.

The Digest has been made possible with the support of Brot für die Welt and the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations Office and other international organisations in Geneva.
