The “Katrina 10” project did not take home “The Rube” statuette at yesterday’s Deadline Club awards dinner. We were in amazing company though, up against a team from The Guardian U.S. that produced “The Counted” about the true number of people killed by law enforcement officials in the U.S. each year, and the Associated Press, for its interactive “Mexico: The Other Disappeared,” about the more than 25,000 people who disappeared in that country between 2007 and 2015.
The writers, editors and producers from the AP won in our category.
Some of the other winners included the AP’s “Seafood from Slaves” piece, which won twice, and Newsweek’s “Toxic Fashion,” The Wall Street Journal for its headline of the piece “A Swan Song for the Fed Dove Who Once Was a Hawk,” and many others. It was awesome to be grouped with such talented people.
