Human Trafficking Foundation Media Awards

Human Trafficking Foundation Media Awards

The 18th October is now Anti-Slavery Day in the UK. The Human Trafficking Foundation wanted to get the date and the week firmly stuck in the minds and the calendars of the public, parliamentarians and the media.

I came up with the concept of an annual media awards ceremony. Retained by the Human Trafficking Foundation to turn the concept into reality, I formulated the judging criteria (the most dominant of which was the IMPACT of the nomination), decided on the award categories (which foused on investigative journalism) and was a member of the Awards Committee which was outsourced to, and set up by, Anti Slavery International.

A few months later, on the 17th October 2011, the Human Trafficking Foundation held its Inaugural Media Awards Ceremony – with 7 awards presented for outstanding work in the fight against camapaigning.

Peter,

Thank you! I thought it was a tremendous event, brilliant turnout and fantastic location. And what an award, it’s massive and a real honour to have been nominated never mind win so thank you again for organising such a great initiative.

Regards, Mark
