The Frontline Club Awards seek to recognise new emerging talents and established names who have shown integrity, courage and independent spirit in their work.

Hosted by Jon Snow, the Frontline Club Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 27 October 2016.

The awards, now in their tenth year, are given by industry peers, the winners being decided by our panel of judges:

Jon Lee Anderson, staff writer at The New Yorker
Patrick Cockburn, Middle East correspondent at The Independent
Carlotta Gall, correspondent for The New York Times
Elizabeth C Jones, freelance journalist and filmmaker
Gary Knight, photographer and co-founder of the VII Photo agency
David Loyn, BBC Afghanistan correspondent
Aidan Sullivan, vice president photo assignments Getty Images
Jeremy Bowen, BBC Middle East editor
Vaughan Smith, founder of the Frontline Club and independent cameraman

This year, nominees are invited to submit published work in one of four categories:

Photojournalism, Broadcast, Print, and Multimedia. The new Multimedia category will recognise journalism that finds its form in a range of new or online media, such as data journalism, audio, web documentaries, interactives, and other emergent forms.

The Frontline Club Tribute Award acknowledges lifetime achievement or work that has not received the acclaim that it deserves. It is judged on a lifetime of work and is decided by the panel of judges.

For a third year we are delighted to include the awarding of The Richard Beeston Bursary in our ceremony. This award of £6,000 is for an aspiring British or UK-based foreign correspondent to spend six weeks abroad, researching and reporting on a foreign news story, in association with The Times newspaper. A further award of £6,000 is available to a young journalist based in Israel, Lebanon or the Palestinian territories to undertake a six-week fellowship on The Times foreign desk in London. Applicants should have at least two years journalistic experience, be under the age of 30 on the application closing date and have a professional command of English. For more information on how to apply for the bursary and past winners click here.
