AWARD NAME: The Edward R. Murrow Award 2020

AWARD RECIPIENTS: Isobel Yeung, Jackie Jesko and Ahmer Khan

AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: VICE on Showtime

AWARD HONORED WORK: “India Burning”

AWARD SPONSOR: CBS News

Moving and illuminating, VICE captures this underreported story with humanity and clarity, in just 15 minutes. By venturing deep into remote communities, the team exposes the disconnect between millions of Muslim Indians at risk of losing their citizenship, and the denials of top officials. The film portrays characters pitted against a bureaucracy with the power to unravel their lives. Dogged investigative reporting and probing interviews result in a work of real impact.
