Winner – Reuters: Ocean shock

  • Contributors – Maurice Tamman, Matthew Green, Mari Saito, Sarah Slobin, Maryanne Murray
  • Judges’ Comments – Impressive use of data, graphics, illustrations, video and writing to explain the many ways climate change is impacting our oceans. Comprehensive and compelling, this package delivered story after story.

In this category, the judges selected two honorable mentions.

Honorable Mention – Bloomberg: Immigration, Inc.

  • Contributors – Lauren Etter, Michael Smith, Monte Reel
  • Judges’ Comments – Compelling personal stories that left the reader feeling emotionally attached to the subjects. Connecting a rural community in the U.S. with a poverty-stricken region in Guatemala was a novel way to illustrate the co-dependent relationships that exist within the immigration debate. Beautiful photography and presentation.

Honorable Mention – The New York Times: Pregnancy discrimination

  • Contributors – Natalie Kitroeff, Jessica Silver-Greenberg
  • Judges’ Comments – Exceptional reporting that exposed a clear pattern of discrimination against pregnant women. The allegations against XPO Logistics are disturbing and it’s no surprise that the company was on the defensive. Also no surprise that this entire package has forced employers, lawmakers and organizations such as Planned Parenthood to rethink and retool policies.
