The Bureau of Investigative Journalism picked up the Digital Media prize for it’s dedicated website at the 2011 Amnesty Media Awards on Tuesday.

The Iraq War Logs, a specialist website exploring the records of US forces’ actions in Iraq, obtained by Wikileaks, exposes human rights abuses by coalition and Iraqi troops during the conflict.

The coveted awards, in their 20th year, recognise excellence in human rights reporting and acknowledge journalism’s significant contribution to the public’s awareness and understanding of human rights issues.
