Journalists from Spain, Argentina, Colombia Honored
Sept 03--The Ibero-American New Journalism Foundation, headed by Nobel literature laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, awarded its annual prizes to journalists from Spain’s Cadena Ser, Argentine Web site Clarin.com and the independent Colombian television network Uno.
The award ceremony was held in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey, an event which Garcia Marquez has attended for the past eight years but which this time he was unable to make because he is suffering from “a bad flu.”
In radio, the organization honored Spanish communicator Marta Del Vado, of Cadena Ser, for her work “Los muros del mundo” (The walls of the world), which deals with the theme of barriers that divide the world, such as that which the United States is building along its border with Mexico to deter illegal migrants.
Reporters Maria Arce and Paula Lugones of Clarin.com were recognized for their work entitled “Ruta 66, el largo camino hacia la Casa Blanca” (Route 66: the long road toward the White House), in the Internet category.
