AWARD NAME: The Kim Wall Award 2022
RECIPIENT: Jacqueline Charles, Jay Weaver, Antonio Delgado, Michael Wilner and Staff
AFFILIATION: The Miami Herald
HONORED WORK: “Made in Miami: How a plot to oust a president led to a murder in Haiti”

The Miami Herald broke new ground with a sweeping and deeply reported package on what really happened before, during and after the assassination of Haiti’s president in July 2021. During multiple trips to Haiti, a country on the brink of chaos, Haiti correspondent Jacqueline Charles gained access to the National Penitentiary in Port-au-Prince to land the first extensive interviews with two key suspects in the killing. The Herald’s richly illustrated account relied on extensive interviews, police records, court filings and more to create an interactive graphic that allowed readers to click and see how and where suspects were connected.
