Three Intrepid Journalists to Receive Prestigious International Journalism Awards

DRUCKEN

NEW YORK, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) announced the lineup for its 35th Anniversary Awards Dinner on Nov. 7 in Washington, DC. The honorees include three courageous journalists: CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer, Stevan Dojcinovic of Serbia, and Rose Wangui of Kenya. As previously announced, Washington Post Executive Editor Martin "Marty" Baron will receive ICFJ's Founders Award for Excellence in Journalism at the event.

The ICFJ Awards Dinner, which attracts nearly 600 media luminaries and supporters, recognizes journalists whose work has made an outstanding impact on society. CNN's Wolf Blitzer will serve as master of ceremonies.

Palmer, CBS News' senior foreign correspondent based in London, will receive the Excellence in International Reporting Award. One of the first U.S. correspondents to helicopter into Afghanistan after 9/11, Palmer has also covered the conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. Previously based in Moscow, she has reported on and in Iran consistently over the past decade. She is one of the few foreign journalists to have visited Iran's nuclear installations.

Dojcinovic and Wangui, two trailblazing journalists, will receive the Knight International Journalism Award, which is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Dojcinovic is a founder and editor in chief of the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network (KRIK) in Belgrade, Serbia. At an increasingly dangerous time, he leads a team of courageous journalists who have turned a light on money laundering by business elites and other abuses by government officials. He is also a regional editor for the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), an ICFJ partner. As a result of his probes, Dojcinovic has been a frequent target of threats and vicious personal attacks by government allies. None of it deters him.

Wangui is a features reporter with NTV, the television arm of the Nation Media Group in Kenya.  She uncovers stories about tough or taboo subjects that no one else dares to touch. With compassion and a strong sense of purpose, she has tackled topics such as sexual bondage of young girls in remote villages, of young Kenyan women who went to work in the Persian Gulf and wound up dead, and of squalid school conditions where children don't have a desk, a pencil or a chair. Her stories have led to major improvements in the conditions she brings to light.

Baron, who has held top positions at five of the nation's most influential newspapers, will be honored for a lifetime commitment to the highest professional standards. Newsrooms under his leadership have won 16 Pulitzer Prizes, including the 2003 public service award at The Boston Globe. As editor in chief, Baron oversaw the Globe's groundbreaking investigation that revealed the Catholic Church's pattern of concealing sex abuse by priests. That investigation later became the subject of an Academy Award-winning movie, "Spotlight."
