  • Competition Comment: All three of the winners in the Coverage of the Environment category were exceptional pieces of journalism. The Los Angeles Times distinguished itself above the rest with a masterful blending of humanity and nature, telling the story of man's destruction of a species and an Indigenous people's holding of that species to be sacred Deeply reported, well written, the piece also featured excellent graphics and visuals.
