Undesired Wins Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award

Undesired by Walter Astrada, a project I produced at MediaStorm for the Alexia Foundation was honored with a 2012 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award and I couldn't be more proud.

From the MediaStorm blog:

The duPont Awards, administered since 1968 by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, are considered to be the most prestigious broadcast journalism awards and the equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes, which are also administered at the Journalism School. Selected by the duPont Jury for excellence in broadcast journalism, the award-winning news programs aired in the United States between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. The honorees will be presented with silver duPont batons at a ceremony held at Columbia University in January 2012.

Congratulations to my MediaStorm colleagues and all the winners.
