SUE - LLOYD ROBERTS MEDIA AWARD

The Sue Lloyd-Roberts Media Award went to Manveen Rana for her BBC Radio 4 series following a Syrian refugee family over the course of their journey to Europe. ‘A New Life in Europe: The Dhnie Family’ documented both the tumult of the family’s journey to safety as well as the challenges they experienced while adjusting in their new country. A humanising, honest and moving account of modern migration, the series added important nuance and depth to the often sensationalised media reporting on refugee issues.
