Freelance cameramen and women are some of the bravest and most vulnerable people in journalism. Working at the forefront of news and current affairs, often alone and without the back-up of a big organisation, they film the stories that inform our lives, challenge our views and inspire us to act.

The Rory Peck Awards uniquely honour their work and attract entries from the most talented journalists, videojournalists and current affairs filmmakers across the world. The ceremony is the main fundraiser for the Rory Peck Trust.

This year's winners will be announced at the ceremony, hosted by Lyse Doucet (BBC) and Katy Tur (NBC News). You can find out more about the 2017 finalists here.

Tickets to the Rory Peck Awards are £90 and include access to the Welcome Drinks Reception and Awards After-Party.

Freelance journalists may claim tickets at the discounted rate of £50 by calling the Rory Peck Trust on 020 3219 7860 or emailing . Due to the limited availability of seats at this rate, early booking is strongly recommended.

“They dig into the kinds of the places that we won’t go, that we don’t go, that we can’t afford to go to. For all these reasons we owe freelancers across the world a huge debt of gratitude”
