I won InterAction’s 2009 Award for Excellence in International Reporting in recognition of HuffPost World’s fabulous international coverage. Thank you and congrats to all the HuffPost World bloggers, reporters and photographers! Great work!!
Here is what the award letter says:
You have been selected to receive the award in recognition of your organization’s outstanding coverage of international news. Our members see The Huffington Post’s World News section as a true leader among the ever-growing list of online news outlets that cover international development and humanitarian action news.
As you probably know, InterAction is the largest alliance of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working to overcome poverty, exclusion and suffering by advancing social justice and basic dignity for all. Last year’s Forum attracted leaders from member organizations, NGOs in the developing world, representatives from USAID, the U.S. Department of State, the United Nations, World Bank and other international institutions.
Previous awardees include Femi Oke of WNYC Radio (formerly of CNN International), John Donnelly of The Boston Globe, and noted “solo journalist” Kevin Sites.
