The project examines how the face of white supremacy has changed from white-robed Ku Klux Klan members and skinheads flying overtly racist symbols to clean-cut, well-educated, middle-class men who have developed sophisticated techniques and ruthless recruiting tactics.
“It feels so great to be recognized for our work. Journalism isn’t easy, especially when seeking uncomfortable truths,” Campanella, the project leader, said.
The category honours creative excellence in the production of a video by a digital publisher that is between three and five minutes in length and was produced for a digital platform.
Global News received five nominations in total for Wednesday night’s awards, including Best Online Video Feature, Best Online Video Mini-Doc, Best Feature Article and Best Social Storytelling, along with the nomination of Global News journalist Jane Gerster for the Emerging Excellence Award.
