  2. In this short film, Alabama barber and civil rights veteran James Armstrong experienced the fulfillment of an unimaginable dream: the election of the first African American president. Armstrong, who went to jail and risked his life to fight for civil rights in the 1960’s, was one of many average citizens who became “foot soldiers” for the cause in the South. The directors wove historical events through Armstrong’s journey with humor and poignancy, telling the larger narrative of the civil rights movement through his life. The film’s visuals are beautifully composed. Audiences get a fresh perspective on the fight for civil rights through this intimate and genuine story.

  3. Sober and professional breaking news coverage of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    From the morning of the shootings and in the painful days that followed, CBS News covered the mass shooting in Newtown with professionalism and integrity. Reporting across the network’s programs consistently gave viewers context, and explored many dimensions of the tragedy including the popularity of the AR 15 rifle used in the shootings and its place in America’s gun culture, and the inner most thoughts of the grieving families. The political battle over gun control in Washington and an exclusive interview with Mayor Mike Bloomberg were also featured in their coverage. CBS News was unflinching in showing the "fog of war" reporting in the first confusing hours, and Scott Pelley’s conversation on “60 Minutes” with seven of the families that lost children was remarkable for its courage and candor.

  4. An innovative multimedia investigation that exposed a special police force’s failure

    to defend those most vulnerable

    In this dynamic multimedia project from The Center for Investigative Reporting, a

    nonprofit journalism organization, investigative reporter Ryan Gabrielson spent a year

    investigating the failures of a special California state police force assigned to protect

    residents of state facilities with severe mental and emotional disabilities. Gabrielson

    exposed how sworn officers and detectives waited too long to start investigations, failed

    to collect evidence and ignored key witnesses leading to an alarming inability to solve

    crimes. Dozens of women were sexually assaulted inside state centers. To tell some of

    their stories, CIR produced multimedia videos illustrating specific cases that appeared

    online, on air on major market television stations and on public radio. As a result of the

    project, a criminal investigation was launched and new laws were passed in California.

    In Jennifer’s Room: Ryan Gabrielson, reporter and narrator; Carrie Ching, directer,

    producer, editor; Marina Luz, illustrator; Evelyn Kelsey, narrator mother's interview.

    Manner of Death Undetermined: Ryan Gabrielson, reporter and narrator; Carrie Ching,

  5. An important investigative series that uncovered alarming problems with youth

    football leagues

    With solid writing, reporting and research, this series of three reports uncovered

    serious problems with youth football in America, where three million children play

    annually, including a player paralyzed after being coached to use a dangerous tackling

    technique, coaches offering cash prizes for big hits and rampant gambling. This important

    investigation added to the growing body of coverage about concussions and football

    with stories that graphically illustrated the problems and featured exclusive interviews

    with those involved in the controversies. ESPN’s reporting had an impact by identifying

    abuses and policy gaps as well as prompting an 18-month police investigation into

    corruption and gambling.
