Photojournalist Sorious Samura produced a first-person report on the atrocities of civil war in his native country, Sierra Leone. After most journalists had fled the county in January 1999, Samura risked his life to film brutally honest coverage of the violence committed by rebel soldiers and the Nigeria-led peacekeepers against each other and civilians. The duPont Jury praised Insight News TV in London, and CNN Productions for their roles in presenting Samura’s reports to audiences in Britain and the United States. Rarely has a civil war been as truthfully documented on television.

The Silver Baton was accepted by Sorious Samura, photographer and producer.
