I’m thrilled to share that TIME and Univision have won the Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches: Current News for a project that our teams did together about the connection between gender-based violence toward women in El Salvador and suicides by young women. This recognition brings attention to a devastating topic.
Huge congratulations to Justine Simons, Naina Bajekal and Ciara Nugent who led TIME’s work on the project, and to Almudena Toral and Patricia Clarembaux, who reported the story from El Salvador and created the interactive page at Univision. Thanks also to the Pulitzer Center, which supported the reporting for the project.
This is TIME’s second Emmy win, and sixth Emmy nomination in four years. It’s a great testament to the extraordinary commitment and talent of the journalists who produced the project, and to the power of our journalism across every platform.
