NPR was chosen from among 526 entries. In explaining its selection of NPR’s Iraq coverage, the duPont-Columbia jury noted: “Despite the difficulties of access and security, NPR’s team of reporters, technicians, editors and their brave Iraqi colleagues managed to find people and situations that illuminate the conflict. Each story is a mini-documentary rich with characters, scene-setting, nuanced writing and strong production. These pieces stand out amid the blur of other daily war coverage.”
