The Shortlist

 Barnie Choudhury, Eastern Eye

The judges said: “Choudhury has been consistent in producing high-impact journalism on topics from institutional racism to the disproportionate effect of the pandemic on south Asian and black communities. Because of his investigation into bulling and racism at the BBC, Asian and black MPs have called for a parliamentary scrutiny into this.”


Saba Salman, freelance for The Guardian

The judges said: “Salman’s work in driving awareness of the devastating impact of Covid-19 on neurodiverse people has been crucial in highlighting the challenges they face. She also exposes how the hard-won rights of learning-disabled people are shrinking, with dire consequences.”


Sophie Campbell, freelance

The judges said: “Campbell’s emotive and erudite articles on how the ambitions, dreams and prospects of female prisoners, particularly women of colour, are crushed by the system are backed up with hard-earned facts and data. She writes with compassion and knowledge, casting a bright light into a world that few journalists have looked closely into.”
