Rape of a Nation Wins Second Place at Best of Photojournalism, 2009

Marcus Bleasdale's Rape of a Nation, a MediaStorm project I produced in January 2008, has been honored with second place in the Documentary Video category at this year's Best of Photojournalism contest. MediaStorm also picked up third place for Jonathan Torgovnik's Intended Consequences, produced by Chad A. Stevens.

First prize went to Jenn Ackerman's Trapped: Mental Illness in America's Prisons.

Congratulations to all.
