Columbia Journalism School announced the 30 finalists of the 2022 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards today. The duPont finalists featured public service reporting across platforms from the ongoing critical coverage of the coronavirus pandemic to the January 6th attack on the Capitol, policing in America and racial inequities, among other topics. It is the second year that the duPont-Columbia Awards have recognized finalists for the silver baton.
“This fearless coverage — embedding in Covid wards; slipping behind borders in war-torn Yemen; taking on local police departments for their civil rights violations — exemplifies the dedication of these finalists, many of whom took great risks to inform the public,” said Lisa R. Cohen, Director of the duPont-Columbia Awards.
