My documentary, Forensic Nurses: Fighting Sex Crimes in South Africa, won the prestigious Steve Harris Award for Best Original Story at the Broadcast Journalism Training Council. It also came with a cool £500 cash prize!
The Judges said:
Earlier this year, it was shortlisted for a One World Media Award.
A written version of the documentary has also been published in the Guardian as part of the international 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, available to read here: 'The nanny realised something was wrong': South Africa’s rape crisis.
The South African Association of Forensic Nurses will also be using it as part of their case to get accredited.
The ultimate reward for me, would be the documentary leading to any sort of change in their plight.
For now, a sincere thank you, again, to everyone for the felicitations.
