A Darkness Visible Wins 2012 Media for Liberty Award

From the MediaStorm blog:

A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan, by Seamus Murphy, was selected by the Media for Liberty Award jury panel as the winning submission for the third annual Media for Liberty Award, a $50,000 journalism prize that recognizes media contributions that examine the link between economic and political liberty. Print, broadcast and online submissions were judged on criteria including thematic relevance, educational value and relevance to the public discourse.

“This was a powerful story that unfolds over fourteen years and illustrates the physical, emotional and economic toll the years of political instability took on an average Afghan family,” said John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Media. “On behalf of the jury panel, we congratulate Seamus Murphy and MediaStorm for producing an educative and compelling piece that stood out among this year’s entries.”
