Nominated for an Anna Lindh Journalism award
The following are a series of article I’ve written over the past months, and for which I was nominated for an Anna Lindh journalism award. (woohoo!🙂 )
The first articles were written during the early days of the revolution; the last one is datedMay 25th 2011– fifteen weeks after Mubarak’s abdication and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces’ jump in the breach when we were out celebrating.
The articles draw a chronological order not only of the revolution, but also of how it affected me as a person and a journalist – small to big picture, personal vs. analytical…
And they end not on an upbeat everythingwillbebettermyfriend note, but rather on cautious worrying. Which is still my attitude vis-à-vis the ongoing events, I guess.
Thank you, as always, for reading – and please keep your fingers crossed for me on October 6th, when the award winner is announced!
