      In a series of powerful and unforgettable stories, rich with detail and dogged reporting, a team of Associated Press journalists documented the horrific crimes unfolding against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar. The AP brought together an impressive talent pool with different skills, from investigative reporter to narrative writer and local insight, to take readers to the front lines of this conflict. The stories exemplified foreign correspondence at its best: exposing and chronicling human rights violations, putting a human face on conflict and providing a road map for future investigations into what world powers are calling genocide. Simply put, it was an incredible package that you want to urge everyone to read.

      Best newspaper, news service or digital interpretation of international affairs

      No story captured world attention in 2017 like North Korea’s claim to have developed a nuclear-armed intercontinental missile capable of unleashing a once-unthinkable war. Of the multiple media projects that explored and analyzed Kim Jong-un’s objectives, The New York Times most effectively harnessed the expertise of its correspondents around the world. Their stories explained the failed Western strategies for containing Kim, looked beyond the cartoonish portrayals of the determined young leader and detailed his success in circumventing sanctions to bankroll “parallel advance”—the loosening of constraints on private enterprise that both improved North Korea’s economy and helped Kim realize his dream of turning his nation into a nuclear power.

      Covering one of the biggest stories of the year, the photojournalists endured clouds of tear gas, petrol bombs, water cannons and live ammunition while attempting to portray the volatile economic and political turmoil in Venezuela. The images show unprecedented scenes of a once prosperous nation unraveling into chaos. The entry, condensed to twelve dizzying images, showcased one of the most visually hostile stories of the year. The potent and strikingly violent images invoked an auditory response from the jury as they rolled across the screen.

      Award Honored Work: “The Congo We Listen To,” an episode of the Rough Translation podcast

      Best radio, audio or podcast news or interpretation of international affairs

      At the heart of good journalism is an honest reckoning with how we know what we know, and what more we need to know. Such was the case with the NPR podcast Rough Translations’ episode: “The Congo We Listen To.” It featured Laura Heaton, a freelance reporter who decided to revisit the 2010 story of mass rape by militia groups in a Congolese village, wanting to know whether that brief period of saturated international media attention had a lasting impact on the village and its women. What she found was that the real story was different from what had been reported, and she worked to find out why village women had chosen to hide the full story. Heaton, with Rough Translation host Gregory Warner, produced a complex and compelling tale about what stories are told, what stories are hidden, and how journalists with good instincts, time and patience, can find a much richer story by listening for what hasn’t been said.

      Award Honored Work: “Fall of ISIS”

      Best TV or video spot news reporting from abroad

      CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh and Arwa Damon brought viewers directly into the final fight to push the ISIS terrorists out of their strongholds in Iraq and Syria while at the same time revealing its terrible human cost. Paton Walsh and his team witnessed the fight for the Al-Nuri mosque in Mosul and the closing hours of the battle when ISIS fighters emerged from the ruins and gave themselves up. Damon’s reporting and particularly poignant narrative on the dead and injured is so strong it is hard to watch. An Arabic speaker, Arwa encouraged survivors of a U.S. bombing that killed over 100 people in Mosul to talk about the agony and death that surrounded them. Judges felt the complementary stories by Paton Walsh and Damon were extraordinary examples of the psychological cost to the victims of prolonged ISIS rule and the fighting that brought it to an end.

      Best TV, video or documentary interpretation of international affairs less than one hour

      The world has been riveted in horror by the brutality of ISIS and the long, bloody campaign to defeat it in Syria and Iraq. The climactic showdown was the 9-month-long battle of Mosul. In Mosul, filmmaker Olivier Sarbil follows a squad of Iraqi Special Forces as they fight their way house by house through Mosul. His documentary stands out for the way it connects viewers with the characters of four Iraqi soldiers, putting human faces on an inhuman conflict. Sarbil shows how the mostly Sunni civilians fear the predominantly Shiite Iraqi soldiers, who in turn are wary of ISIS fighters trying to hide among the civilians they meet – this is the fundamental root of the conflict. We hear the crunch of broken glass under the soldiers’ boots as they approach a doorway, the whispered warning not to move a curtain which could give away their position, the boom of a car bomb that kills one of their comrades. This is the ugly, unpredictable but relentless face of war, seen from up very close through Sarbil’s lens—and clearly at substantial risk to himself.

      Best TV, video or documentary about international affairs one hour or longer

      This remarkable documentary, “Cries from Syria”, serves as an important contribution to the reporting on the Syrian crisis, one of the most challenging conflicts for foreign journalists to cover. By combining footage shot by activists and ordinary citizens with interviews with Syrians who have survived the war, the film masterfully captures a story that is both personal and comprehensive. The filmmaker sheds light on the human toll of the Syrian conflict and highlights the extent of the Syrian government’s war crimes against its own people. It is a film that not only informs and raises awareness of the ongoing war but also memorializes the Syrians who were on the front lines of the conflict.

      Azmat Khan and Anand Gopal spent almost two years visiting about 150 bomb sites in northern Iraq, often at great personal risk, for this powerful story that showed civilian casualties caused by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes were considerably higher than previously reported. With acompelling main character in Bassim Razzo, whose home and family in Mosul were obliterated, indefatigable sleuthing by Khan and Gopal that challenged U.S. statistics, and an impressive use of photography and videography, “The Uncounted” provided a horrifying accounting of the true cost of America’s war.

      Best magazine international business news reporting in print or digital

      Puerto Rico lives in a limbo. As a territory of the United States, its people have American citizenship. But lacking statehood, the island lacks clout in Washington, as became tragically evident in 2017, when a hurricane devastated the island-and Puerto Ricans were largely left to their own devices. Monte Reel’s engagingly written account of the aftermath, “How to Rebuild Puerto Rico,” is a sweeping, moving and financially literate account of Puerto Ricans’ struggle to recover. Refusing to bow to cynicism and commending the islanders’ grit, Reel nevertheless realistically examines the obstacles, in Washington and home-grown, to not only recovery but also to a lasting prosperity for this perennially troubled land.

      In industry after industry companies with big lobbying budgets have managed to control and even dictate regulations without being seen. In “The Phillip Morris Files”, a team of Reuters’ reporters takes us inside that world: the behind-the-scenes maneuvering; the strategic targeting of weakest government links; and the congratulatory high-fiving when the mission is accomplished. This eyeopening series shows just how sophisticated and determined the tobacco industry has been in fighting anti-tobacco forces in government and at international agencies. The team of reporters took powerful leaked documents, followed it up with shoe-leather reporting, and brought home a series with impact.

      Best non-fiction book on international affairs

      American journalist Suzy Hansen moved to Istanbul to better understand the Muslim world. Her highly insightful and engaging book weaves her own background—white, small-town America, elite college—with an awakening on why the U.S. is often hated overseas amid decades of American intervention in the Middle East and elsewhere. She takes aim in particular at how the abiding myth of “American exceptionalism” has blinded American policymakers, journalists and citizens to an often sordid reality. Hansen has produced a sweeping and powerful corrective to the way
      most Americans view U.S. foreign policy of the past 70 years.

      AP reporters covering the collapse of Islamic State’s self-proclaimed caliphate struck the right balance between aggressive reporting and sensitive writing on the horrors endured by Mosul residents. The result is gripping, timely coverage that evoked ghastly images, but also showed the determination of ordinary Iraqis to retain their dignity and humanity in the worst of circumstances. Overall, a sophisticated package of stories that illuminate a human condition the world should not ignore.

      “The Kill List” is a personal and riveting behind-the-scenes insight into the Philippines drug war as seen through the eyes of people involved. The viewer is taken on a journey by hunters and the hunted. The quest by the police to rid the streets of drug users results in the hunted left lifeless. We are taken inside a morgue where a young man is asked to identify a body. He pulls back the sheet and sees the corpse of his father. The moment is raw and emotional. Visible are the bullet wounds and the cuff marks on his wrists. Ed Ou’s spell-binding camerawork is strikingly powerful.

      Best international reporting in any medium dealing with human rights

      In a year filled with horrific violence in many parts of the world, the war in Yemen did not get the attention it deserved. The AP series on the secret torture taking place fills out much of what was unknown about the war in Yemen led by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia. Maggie Michael took great personal risks, with her video colleague, driver and fixers, to tell the story of the 18 secret prisons in Yemen where detainees are tortured by men from the UAE. Chillingly, eyewitness reported seeing Americans in U.S. Military uniform assisting with interrogations. Michael also documented other effects of the proxy war waged in Yemen including malnourished children and economic pressures that result in more childhood marriages as families seek to offload their daughters. Michael and her team documented all of this and more in a chilling package that included charts, video and compelling graphics. The response was immediate and included calls by U.S. senators and the government of Yemen for an investigation.

      This illuminating four-part radio documentary is the result of six months of exhaustive reporting, in which Evans-Brown and McCarthy explore the consequences of a Massachusetts decision to cut carbon emissions by 25%. Their investigation takes them into remote native communities in northern Quebec, where livelihoods have been devastated by giant hydropower projects. Hours of audio include interviews in indigenous languages, decades of history, dissection of Canadian government documents, and the sounds of rushing rivers that immerse listeners in a real sense of discovery. The judges especially liked the team’s ambition, as well as its conclusion that no energy source, no matter how clean, is free of victims—a fact that is too often lost in the coverage of climate change.

      Award Honored Work: "Mexico’s Housing Debacle: A Failed Vision"

      Best reporting in any medium on Latin America

      Through rigorous investigation and compelling writing, Richard Marosi of the Los Angeles Times exposed the origins of a $100 billion scandal that has littered Mexico with shoddy housing projects and the broken aspirations of millions of would-be homeowners. Conceived at the turn of the century as a public-private initiative to build affordable suburbs across the country, the program raised billions from global investors and sparked the largest residential construction boom in Latin America. But instead of lifting up working-class families, the Times found, the program set off a “slow-motion social and financial catastrophe.” Drawing on documents, interviews and inspection of 50 developments from Tijuana to the Gulf of Mexico, Marosi chronicled how corruption, poor planning and impunity trapped thousands of Mexicans in unhealthy, sub-standard housing many could not afford. The Times series skillfully explored themes of poverty, inequality, corruption and accountability. It is a powerful example of investigative reporting and lucid writing arrayed against a major public issue hiding in plain sight.

      Best story or series of stories on international affairs using digital storytelling techniques

      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.

      Award Honored Work: “Duterte’s War”

      Best investigative reporting in any medium on an international story

      Rodrigo Duterte was elected president of the Philippines in 2016 on a promise to eradicate the scourge of drugs. Since then, his police forces have pursued that aim with a bloody vengeance, killing more than 9,000 people. The government has described the raids as legitimate law enforcement operations. In the series “Duterte’s War,” Reuters reporters Clare Baldwin and Andrew R.C. Marshall demolish that defense. Reuters dispatched Baldwin and Marshall to train a microscope on the mayhem. Aided by Manuel Mogato, they combed through law enforcement’s own records to pinpoint operations and identify the officers who conducted them. They examined video surveillance, interviewed scores of witnesses, debriefed emergency room physicians, reviewed leaked documents and obtained crucial testimony from senior police commanders themselves. Their exhaustive, meticulous reporting exposes the scope of the state’s role in the slaughter of its own citizens, making the unanswerable case that the Philippine police have been acting as death squads and using a variety of ruses to cover their tracks.

      Award Honored Work: “Venezuela Undone”

      In insightful, enduring, and richly detailed reports, Dreier chronicled the unraveling of a nation. Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis is not the story of a people overlooked by progress; it is the story of a once-prosperous society, with the largest oil reserves in the world, driven by its leaders to the brink of starvation. Dreier bore witness to a collapse of middle-class life — food riots, collapsing health care, the dawn of mob justice –and then unearthed its origins, a combination of mismanagement, political delusion and corruption. Throughout, she also exposed a less visible realm of ruin: the loss of empathy among neighbors, the corrosion of the soul. Her efforts had consequences. U.S. senators called for sanctions against corrupt officials. Readers donated money to pay for a child’s medical treatments. At the same time, she received threats from Venezuelan intelligence officers and government supporters. Hannah Dreier’s brave and revealing reporting exemplifies the legacy of Hal Boyle and the best of foreign correspondence. It is not only a rendering of recent history but also a warning for the future.

      Award Recipient Affiliation: The Washington Post

      Award Honored Work: “Behind the Firewall”

      In “Beyond the Firewall,” Washington Post reporters confronted a subject of vast dimensions and epic implications: the Internet in China. The idea of the Internet as an inherently democratizing force for good has run up against the reality of China’s campaign to censor in cyberspace. The team took readers into the fascinating and bizarre world behind the “Great Firewall.” They explained how the authoritarian regime in Beijing has utilized social media and web usage to create an Orwellian surveillance tool, the “social credit rating,” to punish and reward every citizen. They interviewed dissidents who test the boundaries of an implacable crackdown that has succeeded in blocking tens of thousands of websites, yet tolerates certain loopholes for a globally connected minority. The series was smart, vivid and effective, bringing alive a difficult subject. It explored a frontier where geopolitics and technology converge, presenting counter-intuitive questions about how governments manage ever-sprawling societies that have the potential to affect vast numbers of people, far beyond China and far into the future.

      What causes people to change their minds, their beliefs, their view of the forces shaping their lives? These four powerful and nuanced stories describe such pivotal moments for people living in the middle of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Emily Harris introduces us to a Palestinian man whose empathy transforms him from revenge seeker to peace activist. Then we meet a Palestinian woman, long involved in peace activism, who becomes alienated from the process and from her former Israeli friends. An Israeli woman changes from settlement opponent to West Bank settler. And a former Israeli soldier, once a proud defender of the nation, suddenly sees himself as “occupier” when he smiles at a young Palestinian girl and catches her look of fear in response. These profound transformations, pulling in different directions, deftly remind listeners of the many facets of this conflict, and they presage the challenges of finding a lasting peace.

Reported over two years from nine countries with four correspondents, the 75-minute long program aired on the eve of the 2016 Rio Games and revealed that the IOC pursues wealth, privilege and glory for its members at a staggering cost to people around the world. This complex and disturbing story shed new light on the IOC and uncovered graft and corruption at a great cost to human rights and dignity at the Olympic Games.

      Award Honored Work: “Hot Mess: How Goldman Sachs Lost $1.2 Billion of Libya’s Money”

      Matthew Campbell and Kit Chellel’s engaging piece about a multi-billion-dollar deal between Goldman Sachs and Qaddafi’s Libya was a feat of storytelling. The careful and vivid selection of details — a banned novel resting on the table, a late-night call to a prostitute in Dubai, the long wait for an elevator in Tripoli — brought a cinematic quality to the writing. The reporting was equally impressive. The story, drawn from court documents and interviews, created three-dimensional characters and offered readers a rare glimpse into how secretive financial deals are sealed. It was a thrilling collision between two of the biggest news themes of the past decade — the financial crisis of 2008 and an autocracy on its last legs before the Arab Spring.

      Using documents leaked from a Panamanian law firm, this highly innovative global coalition of news organizations shocked the world with detailed accounts of how political and business elites, arms dealers and others hid their wealth in secretive webs of more than 200,000 offshore banking entities. More than 400 journalists from nearly 80 countries took part in the remarkably complex project. The sheer scale of the project, lasting over a period of years, surpassed the best efforts of any single news organization.

      Award Honored Work: “The Invention of Russia: From Gorbachev’s Freedom to Putin’s War”

      Grippingly told and brimming with brilliant insights, “The Invention of Russia: From Gorbachev’s Freedom to Putin’s War” explained the past 60 years of Russia’s turbulent political development. Arkady Ostrovsky, a veteran Russian-born journalist who has been on the scene at historical events, immersed himself in years of Russian newspapers and TV programming, and conducted candid interviews with dozens of Russia’s leading politicians, oligarchs and media kingmakers. The result was a fascinating and compelling insider account of how power has been won and lost among Russia’s ruling elite. Ostrovsky highlighted the outsized influence of the Russian media, from the pioneering newspaper Kommersant to the national TV networks and their often amoral news anchors. In one chilling anecdote, political reformer Boris Nemstov visits the office of Russia’s newly elected president, Vladimir Putin, and sees nothing on Putin’s desk except a TV remote control. Putin would soon establish complete power over Russian media; years later, Nemstov would be assassinated.

      Award Honored Work: “South Sudan Slips Back Toward Chaos”

      Robyn Dixon’s vivid dispatches from Nigeria and South Sudan read like novellas, with strong central characters presented not in archetype but in all their complex humanity as they struggle against corruption, terrorism and civil war. Thorough, revelatory news reporting undergirded these tales, but Dixon kept the focus on ordinary people in unimaginable circumstances: a big-hearted father of 25, a driving teacher on perilous roads, a teenage girl traded for cattle. The lyrical storytelling offered a fresh look at African lives that have slipped from view as U.S. news outlets shrink foreign coverage. A concern for the human condition was embedded in Dixon’s journalism — her subjects are survivors, and their capacity for resilience lingered with the reader. Dixon’s work was a master class in foreign reporting that preserves the dignity and voices of the people who trust us with their stories.

      This was a captivating piece of documentary-making. While there have been many stories on the Syrian refugee crisis, PBS produced a lovely, layered story of tragedy and hope that added context to the migrant story. The team perfectly captured the emotion of a family dealing with war and its effects. The focus switched from person to person seamlessly, building rich pictures of each family member. When the family arrives in Germany, each member is seen coping in different ways with their new lives. The eldest daughter makes German friends, shedding her hijab for lipstick and for the first time in her life feeling free. Her mother, however, seems adrift without her husband of 21 years, lonely and confused in a strange country. The cinematography was first rate.

      Award Honored Work: “Islamic State: A Savage Legacy”

      AP’s “Savage Legacy” series was a powerful reminder of the role that the basic business of journalism – getting the facts – still plays in the battle against human rights abuses, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The series also underlined how the reach of a global news agency can tell a story that goes beyond one country or region, showing the patterns that reflect systematized atrocities. The series is also a testament to the spirit and endurance of public service journalism. While officials were slow to document the deaths and destruction of the Islamic State, AP reporters, often at great personal risk, took an active role collecting evidence of the tragedies and despair. The AP documented the existence of 72 mass graves and the destruction of cultural and religious sites by corroborating survivor testimony with satellite imagery, on the ground reporting and reports from local rights groups. The result was a series of stories that established not just the terrible facts, but gave voice to the survivors of atrocities, implicitly challenging the international community to ensure that the perpetrators are eventually held to account.

      In a raw and unique tale from the Central African Republic, Woods described in vivid detail how three 20-somethings run the remote, 38,000-square-mile Chinko wildlife preserve. In his lone, intrepid journey, Woods captured the chilling terror and life-threatening peril the small team endures in the course of their work, including how they stave off murderous gunmen and spend months in an overcrowded jail. All this in order to keep alive one of Africa’s most pristine habitats, with herds of elephant, antelope, rhinos and a multitude of other animals. The story, written with sensitivity and attentiveness, cast a light on the grueling, back-breaking effort needed to protect wildlife in a country with no resources, rampant corruption, and brutal horrors.

      Award Honored Work: “War Crimes in Syria”

      The war in Syria has generated headlines around the world, many of them focusing on atrocities committed by the militant group, Islamic State. Less understood is the saga of torture and murder going on in every corner of the Syrian government’s security and intelligence apparatus. In an exhaustively detailed account, Ben Taub of The New Yorker laid bare the horrific campaign to stamp out opposition, sanctioned by top levels of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government. Based on a heroic international effort to gather documentation of these war crimes, Taub’s account took the more than 600,000 photos, internal memos and witness statements collected thus far and wove a powerful and heartbreaking story of a government waging war on its own citizens. Taub spent months poring through the war crimes files to collect evidence of at least 11,000 victims mutilated, cut, burned, shot, beaten and strangled by the powerful apparatus of the Syrian state. His meticulous review of the documents was supplemented by his own unforgettable interviews with one of the regime’s torture victims, and the dramatic saga of the war crimes investigators themselves — lending a powerful humanity to the document dive. The result was a piece that deployed the best traditions of investigative journalism to achieve a chilling and unforgettable narrative that truly holds power to account.

      Award Honored Work: “Trump, Russia and the Reality of Power”

      If ever a year summoned commentators to think outside the conventional boundaries, it was 2016. The world’s last superpower elected an impetuous, self-absorbed reality TV star to be its commander in chief. His campaign evidently was assisted – in what measure we still don’t know – by a Russia that remains a virtual dictatorship. It was a year made for Masha Gessen. In essays written for The New York Review of Books, the Russian-born journalist and author brilliantly deconstructed the Trump-Putin relationship, confronted unquestioned assumptions about how power works, and described a profound crisis of democracy. Some of her dark forecasts (a stock market crash if Trump won) have not come true (yet), but there is much she got right, not least the ascent of Trump. “It’s time to force ourselves to imagine the unimaginable…Trump being elected president.” That was in July. Whether or not you shared her deep pessimism about a Trump presidency, she made you think.

      Award Honored Work: “Seafood From Slaves”

      In a series of powerful, touching and scrupulously reported stories and videos, a team of Associated Press reporters exposed an ugly truth behind much of the inexpensive seafood on our tables—it is produced by people held captive for years and even decades in Thailand’s seafood industry. The use of slaves to fish for seafood in some parts of the world was widely suspected. But the AP team doggedly located and interviewed captive slaves and followed specific loads of slave-caught seafood to supply chains of particular brands and stores. The effort resulted in the freeing of more than 2,000 slaves, the jailing of a dozen people, the shuttering of businesses and the seizing of ships worth millions of dollars. It spawned calls for action and promises of reform from some of the world’s largest food retailers. The series exemplified foreign correspondence at its best: bearing witness, uncovering the truth and making a difference in people’s lives.

      Award Honored Work: “Birthstory”

      Radio Lab’s Molly Webster and her team took a fascinating story about a gay Israeli couple on a quest to contract for a surrogate baby and turned it into a human, complex and surprising international tale of intolerance, economics and—ultimately—love. They followed the story to Turkey and Nepal, where they discovered a cottage industry of Indian surrogate mothers carrying babies conceived with East European eggs and Israeli sperm. The story showed how cultures cross-fertilize, brought together by different needs and sometimes to each others’ symbiotic benefit. It had no easy answers and challenged listeners’ assumptions about exploitation, risks and benefits of the most intimate—and ethically challenging—of industries.

      Award Honored Work: “Paris”

      Working in a medium relatively new to the organization, journalists at The New York Times conveyed the terror, confusion and pain of the Paris terror attack almost contemporaneously by simply allowing eyewitnesses and victims to tell their stories, in their own words. The fact that these narrated accounts were spoken in French (and subtitled) did not detract at all from their power—a testament to the strength of this approach. Sensitive photography and lighting and effective use of ambient sound highlighted the stakes of the narration. The Times also judiciously used music, graphics and B-roll to highlight the reporting without overwhelming it. Especially noteworthy was the piece “An Improbable Survivor.” During the live coverage of the attacks, much of the world had been transfixed by the image of a man dangling outside a window at the Bataclan Concert Hall. The Times tracked him down and told his story.

Najibullah Quraishi’s courageous reporting shows how ISIS offers recruits $700 a month as they outbid the Taliban and gives a glimpse of ISIS education: tutorials in beheading, grenade tossing and death chants to the United States and Israel.

      Award Honored Work: “Close Your Eyes and Pretend to Be Dead”

      Through dozens of interviews and forensic detail, McConnell delivers an epic retelling of the Westgate Mall massacre in Nairobi in September 2013. Tracking down survivors, first responders, police and neighborhood security, McConnell pieces together a minute-by-minute account of the attack by four Somali Al-Shabaab operatives, which resulted in at least 67 deaths, including their own. Through the eyes of those who lived through the horror, McConnell takes readers into the heart of the events, as though they were in the midst of the violence. The result is a wrenching and breathless experience, in which each person is left to weigh life-and-death decisions in a split second. Through much of it, McConnell shows, police officers stood impotently outside, failing to act to save lives; the military’s glacial response amounted mostly to looting. A heartbreaking and damning story.

The impact of the story was impressive, achieving what many in our industry think is impossible or difficult to do.

We were incredibly moved by the mother who had to leave her two sick children behind while she tried to make a new home for them in Sweden. The despair of the refugee camp in Jordan also struck us. The articles were translated into Arabic. The photographs were remarkable. The editing was excellent.

One judge described the film as restorative journalism at its best, revealing the positive, successful efforts of those who have chosen to risk their lives to win freedom for less fortunate others. Beautifully written and edited, the film is a sensitive, humanizing portrayal of suffering and redemption.

      The team’s superb reporting addresses one of America’s biggest human rights failings: the continued existence of the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay. Among other revelations, they broke new ground about the prevalence of torture in Guantanamo Bay and the CIA’s sexual abuse of prisoners. Rohde and Levinson dug through thousands of pages of legal files to unearth information that had not been published previously. The series also explains why Guantanamo Bay still has not been closed and provides new information about the Military Commission, how a court meant to supervise Guantanamo was open to manipulation and how the transfer of prisoners was delayed by the Pentagon even after countries had been found to take them. This depressing and provocative series did what the best reporting should do: report unflinchingly what had been hidden.

      Projects funded by the World Bank physically or economically displaced an estimated 3.4 million people over the past 10 years. More than 80 journalists from over 20 countries worked for more than a year documenting tragedies that occurred as bank-funded projects failed to abide by the institution’s principles and policies. The investigation was led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and The Huffington Post. Days after being informed of the reporting team’s findings, the World Bank said it would address the problem of “involuntary resettlement.” The investigation combines searing local reporting for both written and visual media, instructive data visualizations and a rigorous analysis of 4,000 World Bank files related to some 1,500 bank-funded projects.

      Award Honored Work: “Thousands of Mexican Families Mourn the ‘Other Disappeared’”

      This powerful project examined the most urgent issue confronting Mexico and Latin America: impunity. Eduardo Castillo and Christopher Sherman used the notorious case of the abduction of 42 students in Iguala, Mexico, as the premise for a larger, more ambitious story about the pain and despair of a society in which 26,000 people have gone missing. The reporters explored a landscape of mafias, violence and corruption with skill, courage and empathy. The comprehensive series painted vivid human portraits: a cartel killer discussing his trade with grim nonchalance; the ordeal of a grandmother and her family in the labyrinth of the kidnapping industry; the dogged, dignified survivors who scour the mountains searching for the clandestine graves of missing loved ones. The result was a moving tale about Mexico’s national nightmare—and a stern indictment of a state that seems alternately complicit, overwhelmed or indifferent.

It lays bare how the quest for profits kept the industry poorly regulated and how ordinary men, women and children across Africa have paid the price. Compelling multimedia storytelling allowed viewers to see and hear directly from these victims and their families, whose voices are rarely heard by the outside world.

      This is a rare case where a panel of journalists looked outside its own tribe and picked an academic: Mark Lilla’s masterful articles on France are a taxonomy of French politics, ideas and intellectual currents, all of it illuminating a year that began with the traumatic terrorist assault on Charlie Hebdo. In trenchant prose, his work combines a shrewd assessment of French current events with an impressive command of French history and literature—a rare example of commentary that is at once journalistic and scholarly, and deeply informed.

      Award Honored Work: Ebola from the Front Line

      When the world’s attention focused on the devastating spread of Ebola in West Africa, reporters for The New York Times delivered, day after day, foreign correspondence at its best. In a series of powerful stories, Times correspondents captured the crisis in all its dimensions – writing lyrically about the human drama and delivering smartly analytical pieces about the global effort to stop the disease’s spread and where that effort went wrong. They also dug beneath the surface of the unfolding disaster with stories that showed a deep understanding of the continent, writing sensitively about the toll the disease was taking on African cultural traditions such as hand-holding in church and kissing friends and relatives. In the tradition of Hal Boyle, for whom this award is named, Times reporters never shied away from the front lines despite the risk. In one memorable piece, the Times wrote about the death of a star basketball player in Liberia and several generations of a household destroyed. In another, a 4-year-old orphaned by Ebola roams a clinic looking for someone to take her home, another soul adrift.

      The Los Angeles Times coverage of the Ukrainian conflict stood out from the rest for its guts, credibility, originality, depth and sophistication of interpretation, and its engaging writing style that made every story a gripping and compelling read. The intimacy of detail – the shattered glass of the airport terminal, the magic helmet, the bullet hole described to the second decimal point, the minibus from hell – combined with sophisticated analysis of how the economic effects disrupted everyone’s daily lives. The reporters’ bravery took us to places we hadn’t seen before.

It reveals a farrago of politics, corruption and greed that attends the commercialization of natural resources in developing nations. Deeply reported and compellingly told, this is investigative journalism of the highest order.

      In the best tradition of wartime storytelling, Aikins’s vivid characters offer a truly fresh window into the Syrian conflict. The wisecracking, passionate young men, a volunteer rescue team in Aleppo, remain with us long after reading. In an inspirational and even funny story, Aikins captures the friends’ longings and doubts with astute empathy. Despite intense risks to himself, Aikins keeps himself out of his understated prose, which is enriched by the quiet photographs of Tomada. A reminder that the essence of war lies in these intimate moments, far from the halls of diplomatic power. Aikins is a freelance journalist and Schell Fellow at the Nation Institute.

      Award Honored Work: The Hedge Fund and the Despot

      Six years after Robert Mugabe brutalized the opposition to win re-election in 2008 as president of Zimbabwe, Bloomberg reporters Cam Simpson and Jesse Westbrook set out to trace a $100 million cash infusion originating from a U.S. hedge fund that helped prop up his dictatorial, financially hard-pressed regime at a crucial moment. In this well-written, diligently researched page-turner, Simpson and Westbrook raised the veil on a series of financial transactions involving the Wall Street hedge fund, bankers and mining companies headquartered in London, shell companies and a rich platinum mining claim in Zimbabwe controlled by the government. Their account shows how global investments can end up in treacherous hands with terrible unintended consequences. Much of the reporting was done from afar after Simpson went to Zimbabwe with a valid visa, only to have government officials there threaten his arrest and force him to flee.

      The Madeline Dane Ross Award goes to the best international reporting in the print medium showing a concern for the human condition. That requirement is impossible to quantify – it must be felt. Of the nearly 40 submissions to this category, “The Ghosts of Rana Plaza” evoked the deepest of feelings, of sympathy for and outrage over the horrendous death of 1,100 workers in Dhaka as a result of a factory collapse on April 24, 2013. The piece renders in heartbreaking detail the humanity of the victims and their would-be rescuers, linking them to all of us through the clothing that Bangladesh produces in vast quantities for the rest of the world. Our cheap jeans come at the cost of their lives. The story was painstakingly reported by Jason Motlagh, movingly photographed by Motlagh and Atish Saha and superbly edited and presented by the Virginia Quarterly Review.

      A stunning example of what good journalism can do to expose labor abuses, “America’s War Workers” is beautifully filmed with unforgettable images and interviews. The team traveled to India and the Middle East and interviewed dozens of workers, providing irrefutable evidence about the exploitation of contract workers on U.S. military bases in Afghanistan. They exposed the intermediaries who charge the poor for menial jobs on U.S military bases and described how the checks put in place by the U.S. government do little to halt the systemic violation of its own laws as well as international conventions on human and labor rights.

      In five lengthy and deeply reported stories, Nick Miroff explored the latest rush for resources across South America and the complex and often devastating impacts that have accompanied the hunt for riches. From the quest for oil in Ecuador to gold mining camps in Peru to palm oil plantations in Colombia, Miroff landed us in one often-forgotten place after another, and did so using elegant and vivid prose. He avoided clichés and offered a contextual depth by framing ethnic rivalries against their political and environmental backgrounds, and showed how the pressures brought by industries have not only caused ecological harm but also exacerbated cultural conflicts. In a contemporary twist on the typical boom story, Miroff demonstrated how drops in commodity prices tend to increase dependence on foreign investment, spur still more development to increase commodity volume, and further environmental degradation.

Reporting from four countries, the Times team provided exceptional context, analysis and details of this immigration crisis. The commitment to the story showed in the quality of the reporting. The first story by Molly Hennessy-Fiske set out the coverage at overwhelmed immigration facilities at the beginning of the crisis.

      Don Bartletti’s riveting photographs documented one boy’s journey across the border. Kate Linthicum, Cindy Caracamo and Tracy Wilkinson’s strong writing and reporting rounded out the coverage.

      Award Honored Work: Secret Casualties

      Deep reporting, meticulous research, strong writing and the overall craft of assembling data, graphics and photos made The New York Times’s investigative series “Secret Casualties” the hands-down winner for investigative reporting this year. The series established a pattern of secrecy by the U.S. military for hiding from its own soldiers dangerous contamination from chemical munitions.

      The series peeled away layer after layer of outrage and injustice – from learning that the U.S. actually cooperated closely with Iraqis in producing the weapons to stating flatly that the government was hiding from its own soldiers the illegal weapons that were at the very heart of the reason the nation went to war.

      Award Honored Work: Al-Qaida’s Papers

      AP’s Rukmini Callimachi won both the Hal Boyle and Bob Considine awards for her reporting on a trove of al-Qaida documents uncovered in Mali. She is the first reporter ever to win both awards in the same year.

      At great personal risk, Callimachi traversed a desert route through Mali, alone and with militants close behind her, to uncover one of the most significant troves of al-Qaida documents ever made public. Her sly, witty and sharply observed accounts of al Qaida’s operation, goals and mindset — from penny-pinching to public stonings — shed light on an organization that, despite more than a decade of war, remains largely opaque. From one of the most dangerous places on earth, she gave voice to civilians crushed under jihadist rule and followed in the footsteps of fighters at the scene of the biggest battle against al-Qaida in years.

      AP’s Rukmini Callimachi won both the Hal Boyle and Bob Considine awards for her reporting on a trove of al-Qaida documents uncovered in Mali. She is the first reporter ever to win both awards in the same year.

      Callimachi captured the chaotic aftermath of the takeover of Timbuktu by al-Qaida fighters. The thousands of pages of documents she found strewn in 10 buildings, formerly occupied by the fighters, led her on a painstaking journey of verification, and it resulted in stories that painted a fascinating portrait of al-Qaida’s presence in Africa. Her work —courageous, resourceful, persistent and sensitive—resonated with the authority of a reporter who understood the people and history of Timbuktu. In particular, she vividly captured what came in the wake of al-Qaida’s departure—a brutal, opportunistic mission by Mali’s military to target light-skinned Arabs and Tuaregs who looked like the vanquished invaders. She documented the efforts of family members to find the remains of the victims, and her elegant first-person piece was a model of the form, reported without fear and written with restraint.

      In the finest tradition of Edward R. Murrow, this documentary challenges everything you thought you knew about the illegal trade in kidneys and the international campaign to stop it. Through interviews with donors, recipients, go-betweens, doctors and prosecutors from North America to Israel and Eastern Europe to the Philippines, the filmmakers provide a rare look at how an illegally acquired kidney reaches a sick person and how both desperation and good will drive the trade.

In a three-part series, Stecklow and colleagues drew a devastating portrait of how Khamenei had secured a position in nearly every sector of Iran’s economy through a little-known agency called Setad. Reuters took major risks in investigating the ayatollah.

      Outlawed in Pakistan” shows how and why it is nearly impossible for rape victims to get justice in Pakistan. This compelling and beautifully filmed Frontline documentary follows 13-year-old Kainat and her family over a period of years as she tries—and fails—to bring to justice the men who allegedly gang-raped her. In the process, the reporters spotlight conditions for women, abuses under Islamic law and serious police failings. Frontline and the filmmakers give the full picture of what a nightmare it is to bring a rape case in Pakistan.

      Bloomberg’s series showed the grim reality of the life of workers who make the shiny Apple phones so coveted by the world’s consumers. The stories by Cam Simpson were impressively detailed. He went down the supply chain to write about migration, the tactics of recruiters and life in the Himalayan villages that supplied the bonded labor to Apple’s subcontractors. Simpson also questioned the contractors and Apple about their practices. His eye for detail made the story compelling. Weeks after reading it we still remember the images of the stranded workers in Malaysia forced to eat rice flakes after their contracts were abruptly terminated, then returning home still in debt to the brokers who had sold them the right to jobs at the factories of Apple’s supplier.

      Award Honored Work: Latin America’s New Paths

      Simon Romero’s rich reporting and elegant writing provided readers with compelling stories that shed light on a variety of issues across Latin America. His insights on the factors driving protests in Brazil were deep and were accompanied by relevant stories such as those on public rage catching up with the country’s Congress, outsized pay in the civil service and the fact that the ruling leftist party was perplexed by the protests. His ability to weave cultural and political context into his reporting helps readers better appreciate the events he covered, be it from Venezuela, where his obituary of Hugo Chavez cast a spotlight on the state of the revolution he created; Argentina, for stories on its native son, the new pope; and even tiny Uruguay, to profile the president and his austere lifestyle.

      Secrecy for Sale” is a ground-breaking project in the digital age. It is a true tour de force in which a very large team came together to assess, report and analyze a massive trove of data about a secret world of off shore accounts hidden from the eyes of governments and citizens. Villains were named and shamed, while the underworld in which they thrived was revealed and explained with precision and depth. The project was accomplished through the effective management of many editorial partnerships and Gerard Ryle deserves enormous credit for pulling together the whole team so effectively.

      The judges were riveted as they listened to this compelling and beautifully narrated story of recent events and the violent massacre of more than 200 people in the village of Dos Erres in Guatamala more than two decades ago. In 2012 the discovery of a father, still alive, and his son Oscar Ramirez, an undocumented worker in the U.S., each of whom assumed the other dead in the tragedy, prompted reporter Nosheen and producer Reed to devote five months to researching the story, finding victims and perpetrators. As a result, Ramirez was granted political asylum in the U.S. and several implicated soldiers have been apprehended for trial.

      Award Honored Work: Opium Brides

      Najibullah Quraishi’s reporting in Opium Brides stood out for its exploration of a dangerous, hidden world to reveal a human tragedy: young Afghan girls traded by their opium poppy growing families to pay debts to international drug lords. The subject matter is intrinsically important, highlighting the plight of Afghan farming families caught between drug traffickers who finance their crops and government officials bent on poppy eradication. But what set the entry apart was the way it ventured into the remote Afghan countryside to show the plight of individual families and their children, as they weighed up the demands of the traffickers and then succumbed to them. Brave, beautifully shot and paced, this entry was sensitive in its handling of a tragic human dilemma and harrowing in its impact.

      Award Honored Work: “Massacre, Memory and Justice in Guatemala”

      “Finding Oscar” is a magnificent journalistic collaboration documenting how prosecutors, forensic anthropologists and human rights activists persevered for 30 years in their quest for justice against the perpetrators of a 1982 massacre in Guatemala. The story begins with the compelling account of a 2011 phone call to Oscar Ramirez, an undocumented Guatemalan immigrant living in Massachusetts, from a prosecutor back home, informing him that he isn’t who he thinks he is. What follows, in both written and radio formats, takes us back in time to Dos Erres, a Guatemalan town whose 250 residents were killed by soldiers three decades ago. Oscar, it turns out, was one of two survivors, abducted at the age of three by the commander of the army squad that murdered his family, and he is now evidence of government complicity in the massacre. Recently several soldiers involved in the raid were convicted and the former Guatemalan President Efrain Rios Montt was indicted on charges of genocide.

Finally, from an impact point of view, it helped lead to some of the worst South African rhino killers facing long jail terms, one rhino poaching kingpin getting 40 years.

      Award Honored Work: Honduras

      One of the most violent countries in the world receives scant media coverage. But Alberto Arce of the Associated Press has displayed a combination of courage, strong reporting and a flair for writing to explain life in Honduras – how this is a country where gangs extort cash from homeowners, where inmates rule its deadly prisons and where the charities of political candidates give away free coffins. Honduras is struggling to maintain political stability three years after its former president was run out of office at gunpoint. Arce goes beyond the standard wire service reporting. His “Letter from Honduras” colorfully recounts difficult life inside the impoverished and dangerous Central American nation. Readers are lured into one story on a father’s quest for justice after his son was killed, allegedly by military officers, with the following lead: “In a capital so dangerous that only the “walking dead” are said to venture out after dark, nothing could draw an obedient son from the safety of his parents’ suburban home into the deserted night. Nothing, that is, but a girl.”

      Award Honored Work: Revolution to Riches

      Through painstaking analysis of the families of Xi Jinping and the so-called “Eight Immortals” and ingenious scrutiny of regulatory filings to trace holding companies to these families, the reporters were able to demonstrate for the first time how China’s elite have used political influence for enormous personal gain. In the process, they have fundamentally changed our understanding of the Chinese state.

      David Ignatius’s insightful writing about the Middle East, informed by his original reporting, was refreshing and illuminating. The judges were especially impressed by his brave visits inside Syria to see first-hand the struggles of the rebel movement. Ignatius’s “48 hours in Syria” is not only a compelling narrative about the rebels, but also an impassioned argument for more direct US support, which might prevent Islamic fundamentalists from gaining an upper hand should Assad fall. “The shower of cash and weapons coming from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and other Arab nations is helping extremist fighters and undercutting any orderly chain of command through the Free Syrian Army,” he warns. In another column, Ignatius reports first hand from Syria on the growing influence of an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. Whether writing about Syria, Egypt or Lebanon, Ignatius provides a level-headed view of the world, while uncovering new information that enhances our understanding . As one judge said, this columnist is “an expert guide” for navigating a complex world full of characters whose motives may be anything but obvious.

      Award Honored Work: War Reports from Libya and Afghanistan

      In a year of momentous events and in a category filled with outstanding entries, the stories by Chris Chivers of The New York Times from Libya and Afghanistan stood out as war reporting at its best. His superb and evocative dispatches explained why the Afghanistan war has become so difficult for the U.S., strategically, tactically and politically. Chivers’ war coverage was a remarkable blend of cool, analytical reporting and impassioned first-hand accounts of the suffering experienced by the victims. In January, his story from Afghanistan about the improved survival rates of wounded U.S. soldiers showed, with impressive documentation, an important trend in the waging of war. Later in the year, his story about the civilian victims in Libya belied assurances by NATO that its seven-month air campaign was without unintended casualties. Tough, cool and brave: these were the hallmarks of Chivers’ great reporting in 2011.

      Award Honored Work: The Zone

      By entering Japan’s closed-off nuclear exclusion zone, Guttenfelder shows us ghost towns abandoned by people fleeing the invisible but very real hazards of radioactivity. Feral dogs roam the deserted streets and unmade beds lie as they were when people hastily evacuated their communities. On the flip side he takes us to intimate scenes in makeshift shelters, where despite their predicament, the evacuees cling to their dignity while attempting to normalize their lives.

      Award Honored Work: Battling Impunity: The Fight Against Mass Rape in Eastern Congo

      Muller took an original approach to documenting a sensitive and difficult story, rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Opening with anonymous but effective portraits of the victims, and then taking us through the makeshift trials that eventually led to convictions and justice for the victims, Muller illuminates a very dark side of human behavior. The glee and satisfaction reflected on the faces of the public after the verdicts were announced is a remarkable and positive ending to at least a part of an endemic abuse of women’s rights.

      Award Honored Work: A Murder Shakes China

      In this extraordinary series of articles, Jeremy Page not only connected the dots behind the mysterious death of a British businessman, but provided startling glimpses into the life of one of China’s leading Communist Party bosses before he was fired in disgrace, as well as a look at the privileged lifestyles enjoyed by at least some corrupt politicians in today’s China.

      The stories are notable for depth of reporting, an even presentation of the evidence, and a balanced tone. Nevertheless, taken together, they form a damning case that the wife of Chongqing party leader Bo Xilai may have poisoned businessman and family adviser Neil Heywood, a crime for which she was ultimately convicted. Aside from exposing the political scandal of the year in China, Page interprets the events in light of the power struggles taking place in the country just prior to its once-in-a-decade transfer of leadership.

They show us what daily life is like in a closed-off and isolated society.

But Lourdes Garcia-Navarro did more, recording pitch-perfect narration from Gadhafi’s Tripoli compound and notorious Abu Selim prison and providing honest, unflinching portraits of people whose lives were being destroyed, or begun anew, as the country lurched into its new era.

      In addition to her courageous reporting in the face of danger, Christiane Amanpour distinguished her coverage of the revolts by obtaining two timely and revealing interviews: in Egypt with President Hosni Mubarak and in Libya with Colonel Moammar Gadhafi. She was the only journalist to talk to these doomed leaders as their regimes were being torn apart. Because Amanpour has been covering the Middle East for two decades, her depth of understanding of the region enabled her to truly capture these historic times in her compelling reports — both as a witness and especially as an interviewer.

      The Journal ran a series of articles over the course of almost a year that described how Iran, Egypt, Libya and Syria used technology from Western and Chinese companies to break through Skype’s encryption features to spy on dissidents, track mobile phone users, conduct surveillance of them, and censor web activity and satellite television broadcasts. Protesters were using high-tech tools to rally support, but their governments were also secretly using technology to stop them. The series raised disturbing questions about whether U.S. and European firms have a responsibility to keep their technology out of the wrong hands and whether Western governments can prevent Chinese companies from rushing in to assist such countries as Iran.

      Every 90 seconds somewhere in the world a woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth; 80% of these deaths are preventable. The program focused on nations with the worst history and how the powerful drive of women is bringing hope and help. The team traveled from Afghanistan to Sierra Leone, Bangladesh and elsewhere, filming the efforts of NGOs and doctors to train volunteers to use cell phones to communicate with doctors during pregnancies and to deliver babies hygienically in primitive homes. It cited how well-known model Christy Turlington, who almost died in childbirth in the U.S., used her fame to make a documentary to raise awareness and money for the medications that saved her life. The judges credit the program additionally for its success in moving viewers to contribute interactively to a number of organizations dedicated to health improvement worldwide.

      Award Honored Work: European Disunion

      The Journal’s coverage of the European sovereign-debt crisis demonstrated that it’s possible to write about complicated subjects in a compelling way. From a moving account of Greece’s rising suicide rate to a novelistic reconstruction of how Europe’s leaders dithered, Journal reporters combined insight, anecdotal and evocative writing in a nuanced, three-dimensional series that explained how a mountain of debt threatened to sink a continent.

There is a consistency to the images that helps the viewer identify with the subjects and the perils they are encountering. Syria has been one of the deadliest locations for journalists since the beginning of this armed conflict and this photographer embodies the finest values of the Capa Award in this collection of images.

      Award Honored Work: Almost Dawn in Libya

      Liohn’s harrowing and dramatic series of images taken in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata are truly in the spirit of Robert Capa’s combat photography. These searing images are a first rate example of close quarters combat photography obtained at great personal risk. Rarely do we see photos taken so deep in the fog of war, serving, as they do, to shine a bright light on the horrors and consequences of combat.

Finnegan tackles a very dangerous story and delivers insightful and well-researched reporting that traces, for the first time, the philosophical roots of one of Mexico’s most vicious and bizarre drug cult groups.

The multimedia project is magnificently presented and involved a team of reporters spanning 10 countries. It opened eyes around the world, led to changes in industry and regulatory practice, and could stand as a new model for investigative journalism in a time of media transition.

      Award Honored Work: The All-American Canal

      For more than 550 illegal immigrants seeking work in America, crossing the border ended in death in the “The All-American Canal,” a moat on the U.S. border with Mexico. “60 Minutes” exposes this silent carnage, unknown to most Americans and even to the families of the dead, who often never learn their loved one died in the canal’s chilly, fast-moving currents. Correspondent Scott Pelley and producer Shawn Efran deftly show how the canal provides agricultural water for U.S. winter produce, but claims the lives of many trying to cross it in pursuit of a farming job. Because of the publicity caused by the report, officials are installing safety escape lines, potentially saving hundreds of migrants who might otherwise perish in their search for the American dream.

      In a world focused on China’s rapid transformation into a global economic powerhouse, it’s rare to hear about how that change affects the lives of ordinary Chinese, and rarer still to have those lives revealed in the kind of detail that Tom Lasseter captures in this series of articles. Often in the face of official harassment, Lasseter uses detailed interviews, records and official reports to delve deeply into the frustrations, deprivations and official indifference that rule his subjects’ lives. In the millions of words written about China, these tales stand out because they make you care about the people they are written about.

      The judges were impressed by the Journal’s coverage, over a period of 10 months, of how the Chinese Communist Party’s leadership has changed the rules facing foreign multinationals in an attempt to squeeze them for their technology and allow Chinese state-owned enterprises to use that technology under the guise of “indigenous innovation.” The Journal’s team of reporters covered this trend in industries ranging from jet fighters to high-speed trains. In so doing, they captured what appears to have been a decisive shift in the business climate in what is now the world’s second largest economy.

Louis Loftus, 22, from Akron, Ohio, who spoke with unusual candor about the trauma of battle. The riveting footage of the ferocious surprise attack by the Taliban against the soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division coupled with the post-gunfight interview and homecoming of Sgt. Loftus demonstrate Engel’s unique ability to capture the moment and to bring the audience to the battlefield, even if it means putting his own life in danger.

      Award Honored Work: Rationing Health: Who Lives? Who Decides?

      Fink, Baron, and Cox showed tremendous enterprise in an impactful series, which entailed more than six months of reporting and editing from four countries. This fresh and well-researched series takes a global look at the controversial issue of choosing who gets medical care in situations with limited resources, such as life-sustaining kidney dialysis in South Africa or rationing of care during natural disasters such as earthquakes or floods. The series—which maximized the impact of the stories using multimedia and a Q&A with reporter Sheri Fink—should be required listening in the US, as the debate rages on over health care solutions.

Their stories of beatings, chicanery and intimidation, sickening in their details, opened eyes and led at least one company, Microsoft, to change the way it does business in the country. “Above the Law” soared.

In this rich body of work, Chandrasekaran and Partlow captured the tragedy of Afghanistan’s war.
