How to Save a Country From Snakebite

 Yao-Hua Law, Mosaic

"An instantly fascinating article that takes the reader to an area rarely heard about. The story is told so beautifully, with a brave narrative that casts a light on a really underreported subject. It's hard to forget the central character and her enthusiasm and dedication to this cause."

Treasure Hunters: The Lost Coins of Alexander the Great

BBC News Arabic

"Treasure Hunters told us something new about Gaza - a part of the world that we normally hear reported on in terms of conflict and crisis. It takes the audience on a gripping quest. Strong human stories remain the heart of it and the beautifully designed interactive format completely engaged us in a complex story."

Shatha Hammad

Middle East Eye

"Shatha Hammad’s work is both ground-breaking and rich with detail. The jury recognised her ability to illuminate political and social issues through the lens of individuals. Hammad’s work is all the more impressive because of the obstacles she faces as a Palestinian journalist reporting in the West Bank, including being detained and subject to digital searches at checkpoints."

Defying The Cutting Season

Giselle Portenier, BBC Storyville

"Beautifully crafted, this film took the viewer into a world rarely seen by outsiders. It is exceptional in giving young African girls the space and pace to own and articulate their narrative in the face of opposition. This is a film whose impact is only just beginning to be felt and through this film the issue and challenges of dealing with FGM have been made both stark and surmountable."

John Sudworth

and the winner of the INTERNATIONAL JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR award is...

John Sudworth

BBC News

"John Sudworth's body of work exposing the treatment of the Uighur population in China was truly agenda-setting and it transformed our understanding of what was happening. The jury felt it represented a first slice of history. This work will be acknowledged for decades to come, such is its significance. And at its heart are many thousands of stories from marginalised communities where human identity has been wilfully discarded for the benefit of state power."

INTERNATIONAL JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR award jury

Rappler
The Philippines
and the winner of the SPECIAL award is...

Rappler

The Philippines

"A well deserved winner, Rappler stood out for its courage in standing up against a barrage of harassment and propaganda. Despite the imprisonment of its founder and the arrest of other staff members on trumped-up charges, Rappler has defied intense efforts to close it down. They have continued to investigate those in power and encourage independent and empathetic thinking in a deeply impressive way."
