Nieman Reports has won two Mirror Awards, which honor excellence in media industry reporting. Moral Hazard by Yang Xiao, NF ’14, won in the best commentary category while Where Are the Women? Why we need more female newsroom leaders by Anna Griffin, NF’ 12, won as the best single article in digital media.
“Moral Hazard” appeared in the Winter 2014 issue of Nieman Reports as the lead in a cover package on “The State of Journalism in China” that looked at how reporters are trying to work around Chinese censorship 25 years after Tiananmen. “Where are the Women?” was the cover story for the Summer 2014 issue of the magazine, which examined the dearth of women leadership in newsrooms and what can be done to increase their ranks at the top.
Administered by Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, the awards were presented in a ceremony in New York City on June 11, 2015.
