The Abroad Press Club named its winners, including two for business enterprise journalism.
The Malcolm Forbes Award for most effective worldwide small business news reporting in newspapers, information expert services, journals or digital went to International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, The Washington Publish, Miami Herald and just about 150 media associates for “The Pandora Papers.”
The judges wrote, “Another tour de pressure by the ICIJ, the Pandora Papers brought collectively journalists from dozens of news organizations to rummage via a treasure trove of far more than 11 million leaked documents displaying how income and energy operate in the 21st century.”
The Morton Frank Award for finest worldwide enterprise news reporting in Television set, video clip, radio, audio or podcast went to Sandy Tolan, Euclides Cordero Nuel and Michael Montgomery of Reveal from the Heart for Investigative Reporting, PRX and Mom Jones, with help from the Pulitzer Center, for “The Bitter Work Guiding Sugar.”
The judges wrote, “This in depth investigation by Sandy Tolan and Euclides Cordero Nuel took listeners deep into the sugar cane harvesting camps manned by Haitian immigrants in the Dominican Republic. The reporting, which has prompted scrutiny from Congress and the Department of Labor, documented workers enduring $4 a working day wages, staggering debt, substandard housing and woeful medical treatment while improving Central Romana Corp.’s profitability.”
