Since 2002, the Vietnam Human Rights Network has presented annual Awards to selected human rights activists and organizations in Vietnam who have made their mark in the inexorable march towards freedom, human rights and democracy of the Vietnamese people. It is also an opportunity for Vietnamese in the Diaspora to express their solidarity with and support for those involved in the relentless fighting for basic rights and justice for Vietnamese people.

The prize-awarding ceremony was held every year in different locations around the world on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day (December 10). After nearly 2 decades of existence, the Vietnam Human Rights Awards have received positive marks from both inside and outside of Vietnam, despite sharp criticism by the Vietnamese authorities.
