A National Endowment for Democracy (NED) grantee today received the Distinguished Reporting Award of the 2020 European Press Prize for Fighting China’s Surveillance State by Isobel Cockerell (UK), published by Coda Story (Georgia).
Another NED partner, the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network Bosnia and Herzegovina, received a “Special Award” for its reporting on war crimes trials and transitional justice. The special prize is awarded “to one striking entry which defies categories and disciplines.”
“The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network’s work ensures a unique archive of all war crime trials, as well as many personal stories of survivors, documentary films about the victims of sexual violence and families of the missing, and numerous other research and analytical stories,” the European Press Prize judges said in a statement.
The innovation award for “challenging the current boundaries of journalism by finding new ways to engage with audiences” was won by How DoR organized an all-team pop-up newsroom in Transylvania by the team of Decât o Revistă (Romania), published by Decât o Revistă (Romania).
