The Washington Post has won the Overseas Press Club’s Kim Wall Award for its project on Israel’s 50-year occupation of the West Bank, which the judges hailed as “an intimate, immersive series that transports readers into the worlds of three Palestinians.’’ The Kim Wall Award recognizes the best story or stories on international affairs that use digital storytelling techniques.
The award goes to William Booth, Sufian Taha and Linda Davidson, who provided on-the-ground reporting, writing, photography and videography from checkpoints, a brand-new city and an Israeli hospital, all of which were featured in the project. Tiffany Harness, Nick Kirkpatrick, Jake Crump, Jenn Amur and Jason Aldag, were the primary editors on the project.
The winners will be honored at the OPC’s annual dinner in New York on April 26.
