Mauritania reporting wins online award

A CNN investigation into modern day slavery in Mauritania has won Best Feature at the annual Online Journalism Awards.

Slavery's Last Stronghold” followed the stories of slaves and slave owners in Mauritania, the last country in the world to abolish slavery but where it is thought between 10% and 20% of the population still live in servitude.

Spending nearly a year to gain entry into the country and conducting many of their interviews at night and in covert locations, CNN writer John Sutter and digital content producer Edythe McNamee went to great lengths to uncover the tragedy of slavery across generations. The project was published as CNN's first digital magazine, combining  video, text, photography and interactive components.

The 2012 Online Journalism Awards were presented in San Francisco on September 22. The awards, which began in 2000, celebrate innovation in digital journalism around the world.

    • well..

      Your boss doesn't rape your wife and then kill her unborn child by putting her in the back of a truck and driving like a maniac across the desert while you almost die of heatstroke working a field everyday for him does he......It's rough over there.

    As tar as we can see,there are many forms of slavery that taking place around the world.Some are cause by wars to create the condition to fuel slavery,as member poor people are run from the place they have called home for as long as they remembers.Sometimes it's because some oil company wants to pass their pipe lines,so they employs men of war to run these peaceful people from their lands.Other cases are where large landowners wants control of lands so they find ways of enslaving people to work these lands that they will never own.And set up refugee camps as base to draw people to fuel this modern day slavery.As free thinking people with high moral standards we need to look at working with the untied nations where we can offer solution to this new method of enslaving people.Countries such as Guayana and other nations of south Armerica which can provide place to help nations people with land that they can farm.So we will have better food supply to others that cannot work as in the fields,but maybe able to do some other form of becoming productive member of our new world society.This can also give Mr Obama speech on global initiative to stop Modern day slavery more meaning than just talk action is needed today to free refugees from war torn nation

    Please, Please Please speak with some of the Massachusetts people. I was listening to a radio station yesterday and a gentleman called in on a republican talk show and he was talking about the debates. He mentioned that there were several of his friends watching the debate together, they all of a sudden looked at each other and said Romney is giving his 2004 speech that he gave when he ran for Gov. of Calf. He said they all felt anger and said fear came into each one of them. He could be running this country and ruin this country like he ruined our state. He left the state in a disaster, and they were fearful he may just have a shot due to the fact he won the election based on the same rhetoric he campaigned on in 2004. The gentlemen and his friends were very seriously angry and afraid. He spoke very clearly and intelligently however, He mentioned several facts about how Massachusetts changed for the worst in his governorship.

    I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
