Carmel Delshad and Kirsti Itameri have won the 2012 RFK Europe Journalism Award in the category of University and Schools of Journalism for “I Marched Along,” their interactive master’s project documenting how the revolution in Egypt will affect women.
The RFK Journalism Awards honor those who report on human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action.
Delshad and Itameri began their research for “I Marched Along” while interning in Cairo last summer. They will be traveling to Florence, Italy, this month to accept the award. Both attended the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism, and completed this project for their capstone project.
