Almost every day there is media coverage of an international prize or award. The issues highlighted range from the advancement of science to excellence in artistic endeavour to human rights. This article looks at the proliferation of human rights prizes and asks searching questions about who really benefits from this huge investment of time and money. The article explores the delicate balance between the needs of international organisations to build their media profile and attract funders and the needs of the organisation or individual on the ground for whom the winning of an international award can be a ground breaking opportunity.
