The judges chose the winners from more than 1,600 entries in categories covering print, radio, television and online. Congratulations to Nikole Hannah-Jones, Jeff Larson, Amanda Zamora and Maisie Crow on this well-deserved honor.
And earlier this week, 'Losing Ground,' a collaboration between ProPublica and The Lens in New Orleans, was named a regional winner for the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award, run by the Radio Television Digital News Association, which honors outstanding achievement in electronic journalism. This automatically advances our team to the national competition, the winners of which will be announced in June. Best of luck to Al Shaw, Brian Jacobs and Bob Marshall.
