SUE - LLOYD ROBERTS MEDIA AWARD

Amelia Gentleman was awarded the Sue Lloyd-Roberts Media Award for her outstanding investigative journalism which unearthed the scandalous treatment of Windrush immigrants in the UK. Her dignified and sensitive coverage for The Guardian highlighted the UK’s broken immigration system, resulting in the resignation of the then home secretary. Amelia’s work has also raised awareness, influenced public policy, and paved the way for others to draw attention to the hostile environment policies affecting thousands of people across the country. Amelia has won numerous awards including Journalist of the Year at the British Journalism Awards, Print Journalist of the Year at the London Press Club, the Amnesty International Hong Kong Human Rights Press Award, and the Orwell Prize for Journalism.
