Celebrating freelance cameramen and women: the Rory Peck awards
19th November 2014

The Rory Peck award is the only award dedicated solely to the work of freelance cameramen and women who've been at the cutting edge of many of the world's most dangerous stories. 

The awards will be held tonight at London's BFI.

Some of the finalists have put their lives at risk in the name of journalism. Sky News Special Correspondent Alex Crawford, who's hosting tonight's ceremony, explains why the award matters, what it celebrates and talks through much of the stunning work done by the finalists. 

Rory Peck was one of the most well respected journalists of his generation. He was killed in Moscow, October 1993, during Russia's October coup. He was filming a gun battle outside the Ostankino television station.
