The 2020 Cabot Prize winners are Ricardo Calderón Villegas, investigative reporter, Colombia; Patrícia Campos Mello, Folha de S. Paulo, Brazil; Stephen Ferry, photojournalist, United States; and reporter Carrie Kahn, NPR, United States. Each winner has dedicated his/her career to outstanding reporting in the Americas, sometimes risking their lives through their investigations.
“At a time when journalists are increasingly under attack for doing their jobs, global support for a free press and the free flow of information has never been more important,” said Columbia President Lee C. Bollinger. “On behalf of the entire University, I offer this year’s Cabot Prize Medalists my congratulations and my gratitude for their brave and tireless work covering the news in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
