Human Rights Audio Documentary Award

Deadline: August 30
Award: $2,500, invitation to talk

This new award, sponsored by the Human Rights Archive and the Archive of Documentary Arts at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, seeks to support outstanding documentary artists exploring human rights and social justice and expand the audio holdings in the Archive for long-term preservation and access. Through the use of aural practices, we are seeking submissions that delve into the sensory world of human rights via the act of listening. We highly encourage works that pull from the strengths of the medium and go beyond the core mission of transmitting information but can create sonic worlds and immersive experience. Both narrative and experimental documentary works are accepted.
