My work has been shortlisted for the European Press Prize 2012. The selection was based on stories that I have edited for the Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence, as well as for the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network. The shortlist described the work as a “revelation”, praising the “excellent” way in which strong on-the-ground reporting had been shaped for an international audience.
Other contenders for the prize’s Innovation Award include The Guardian’s Paul Lewis for his year-long research into the causes and consequences of the London riots, and Lukas Hassig of Inside Paradeplatz, a website that has investigated the practices of major Swiss banks.
Separately, an investigation that I edited about the racket in Romanian passports has also been shortlisted for the European Press Prize’s Reporting Award.
