And the winner is…

At the #UNCOVERED conference the winners will be announced of the first-ever Impact Award for Cross-border Investigative Journalism. It honours international collaborations that have made a difference – leading to political change, exposing wrongdoing or resulting in criminal charges.

The jury met on Monday March 22 to choose the best projects from a shortlist of investigations nominated for Europe’s first award devoted to cross-border investigative journalism.

Chaired by the Guardian’s central and eastern European correspondent Shaun Walker, the panel of high powered experts are: Teresa Ribeiro, Representative on Freedom of the Media at the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe OSCE, Nassira el Moaddem, Christian Jensen and Andrzej Rojek.
