AWARD YEAR: 2014

AWARD NAME: The David A. Andelman and Pamela Title Award

AWARD RECIPIENT: Josh Fine and David Scott

AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel

AWARD HONORED WORK: The Price of Glory

The Price of Glory” is enterprise reporting at its best from three countries: Josh Fine and team reported from Qatar and Doha’s labor camps building new facilities for the 2022 World Cup; from Bulgaria where an Olympic weightlifting team was purchased wholesale; and followed coffins of migrant construction workers home to Nepal. A Qatar government official is visibly shocked the HBO team got access to labor camps, claims hundreds of 2022 World Cup worker deaths are “normal,” then walks out of an interview. This feature spotlights abusive conditions, needless worker deaths and the immense wealth that covers it up.
