Just a quick post to congratulate colleagues Jason Szep and Andrew R.C. Marshall for winning a Pulitzer for International Reporting, Reuters’ first in a text category, for their great coverage of the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar. Great work that had a real impact and helped save lives.
Awarded to Jason Szep and Andrew R.C. Marshallof Reuters for their courageous reports on the violent persecution of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority in Myanmar that, in efforts to flee the country, often falls victim to predatory human-trafficking networks.
Also: Megan Twohey is a finalist in the Investigative category “for her exposure of an underground Internet marketplace where parents could bypass social welfare regulations and get rid of children they had adopted overseas but no longer wanted, the stories triggering governmental action to curb the practice.“
And the amazing Goran Tomasevic is also a finalist for his series of photographs covering combal in Syria.
A really nice day to be in the Reuters newsroom.
