AWARD HONORED WORK:Occupied

AWARD SPONSOR: AT&T

What does it feel like to be occupied in 2017? To answer this question, The Washington Post produced an intimate, immersive series that transports readers into the worlds of three Palestinians: an everyman construction worker; a matriarch in the final stages of cancer, and an idealistic tycoon striving to build a model city amidst turmoil. Fusing powerful writing, photos, maps and raw footage, “Occupied” captures the slow grind of thousands of men inching through a single checkpoint, and what it means to seek cancer treatment in an area where only 16 oncologists serve a population of more than 4 million. In doing so, journalists William Booth, Sufian Taha and Linda Davidson bring to life the continued human costs of Israel’s military occupation that has now lasted 50 years.
