CNN's Arwa Damon wins 2014 Courage in Journalism Award

CNN’s senior international correspondent Arwa Damon has been named a recipient of the 2014 Courage in Journalism Award, it was announced today by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF).

Celebrating its 25th year, the Courage Awards pay tribute to female journalists who risk their lives to report the news. This year’s recipients also include Brankica Stanković from Serbia and Solange Lusiku Nsimire from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

"As a journalist working for an international news network like CNN, the gender bias has largely been broken. Such is not the case for others – both men and women – in the field who have to chart their own course while facing threats at home without the protection of a major news network,” said Damon. “To be recognized alongside Brankica and Solange as well as recipients of years past – people I admire and respect, whose quality of journalism continues to raise the bar – is humbling. And it’s not just because they are women, but because they are stellar journalists who won't let anything or anyone stand in their way of pursuing the truth."

CNN Wins Three News and Documentary Emmy Awards

EMMYAWARDS

CNN Worldwide was awarded with three Emmy Awards at the 34th Annual News and Documentary Awards. CNN’s diverse recognitions of its journalism include:

Outstanding Live Coverage of a Current News Story – Long Form

Election Night in America

Seven CNN control rooms in three separate cities with hundreds of staffers worked together to tell the story of the election in a blockbuster broadcast symphony. In addition to getting the votes first, CNN also got the analysis right, with John King at the "Magic Wall" to put reporting expertise on display with a visual tool that out each precinct's fight in geographic and political perspective.

Outstanding News Discussion and Analysis

Anderson Cooper 360 – Kids On Race: The Hidden Picture

Race is one of the most explosive issues in America, and for many adults the most taboo to talk about. But simply not talking about it does not solve any of the issues and that is what the project aimed to do - get kids and their parents to talk about race and to look to this younger generation to see how far we've really come.

Outstanding Writing

Nick Paton Walsh: Reports from Syria and Afghanistan

Nick Paton Walsh's poetic writing contrasts with the sobering environments from which his stories are usually drawn. His reports punch through the daily accounts of wounded and dead, and give us a fresh way to see the grinding pitilessness of war, and its quirky inconsistencies.

In addition to these News and Documentary Emmy Awards, Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown was awarded with two Primetime Creative Arts Emmys in a ceremony in Los Angeles last month.
