True Heroes Film releases a gateway to human rights awards and their laureates
In February, True Heroes Film has released a gateway to human rights awards and their laureates: The Digest of Human Rights Awards. The Digest is a new free online tool that gives everybody access to information on human rights awards, including the list of people who received such awards.
True Heroes Films (THF) is a Geneva-based media organisation with a global reach. Through filmmaking and digital storytelling, they spread human rights knowledge and support human rights defenders by raising their visibility.
Over the last 20 years, the human rights movement has discovered the value of awards. The Digest tells that story and makes human rights defenders more visible as an encouragement and role model for others. “It is a useful resource that places individuals, the laureates, at the heart of the search process,” commented Eleanor Davis of the Centre of Applied Human Rights at York University.
For human rights defenders, the Digest allows finding awards and people concerned with similar causes worldwide. Award givers can quickly check their candidates. For media, the Digest means instant access to information on human rights defenders or an award announcement to complete their story.
