The Abroad Press Club named its winners, such as two for company journalism.
The Malcolm Forbes Award for ideal worldwide business information reporting in newspapers, information services, publications or digital went to International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, The Washington Publish, Miami Herald and nearly 150 media partners for “The Pandora Papers.”
The judges wrote, “Another tour de pressure by the ICIJ, the Pandora Papers brought collectively journalists from dozens of information corporations to rummage by a treasure trove of much more than 11 million leaked documents demonstrating how revenue and electrical power function in the 21st century.”
The Morton Frank Award for best international company news reporting in Television, video, radio, audio or podcast went to Sandy Tolan, Euclides Cordero Nuel and Michael Montgomery of Expose from the Center for Investigative Reporting, PRX and Mother Jones, with aid from the Pulitzer Middle, for “The Bitter Do the job At the rear of Sugar.”
The judges wrote, “This comprehensive 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 Office of Labor, documented workers enduring $4 a day wages, staggering financial debt, substandard housing and woeful health care care when improving Central Romana Corp.’s profitability.”
