Aljazeera's Tony Birtley won the Concentra Award for breaking news for his footage and reporting from Myanmar. Accepting the award, he pointed out that as a correspondent he usually works with a crew but in this case solo video journalism was the most appropriate. He secretly entered Myanmar and was the only correspondent from an internal news organization; Aljazeera kept his identity secret while he was inside the country so the Myanmar authorities wouldn't find out.
I caught up with him later to congratulate him. The whole social media thing was new to him, he told me later. What a great guy!
The winner of the Concentra Outstanding Video Journalism award went to Idar Edvin Krogstad's "The Nightwatch", the moving story of two nurses dealing with life and death in a nursing home, well deserved.
