‘I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my producer and inspirational director, my wonderful co-stars, my parents, my pet dog…’ This is the sort of thing you are guaranteed to hear at pretty much any Oscars ceremony, but perhaps not at the Honesty Oscars – a joint initiative of ONE and Accountability Lab. It’s a week-long event to honour ground-breaking organisations, activists and individuals who make the world more transparent and help hold governments and corporations to account. The event celebrates filmmaking, music, activism, tech tools and innovative approaches to information. To see this year’s nominees and winners, take a look at the ONE blog.
This year’s winners have already been announced, but some of you could be in the running to pick up a gong at the 2016 awards. Keep an eye on the ONE site to find out more.
