Double Gold in 2020 World Media Festivals: Television & Corporate Media Awards!

My first gold, and first double gold for The Pulse team! Thank you everyone involved in the following two productions and to all those who voiced out for what they think is just. It hasn’t been easy in the past few months, but we’ll continue to do our best, for however long that might be.

(1) intermedia-globe Gold in Human Rights Documentary: “In the Prisons that Don’t Exist – Xinjiang’s Re-education Camps”

A 46-minute documentary (link to part 1 / 2 / 3 ) covering the detention of more than one million Uyghurs and other Muslims in the “re-education camps” in Xinjiang, China. The Chinese authorities argued, in the name of combating terrorism and religious separatism, those are “vocational training camps” instead. However, human rights advocates say this is part of a deliberate attempt to destroy the cultural identity of Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities.

(2) intermedia-globe Gold in Feature News: “Frontline Volunteers at the Hong Kong 2019 Movement”

During the 7-month anti-extradition bill movement in Hong Kong in 2019, we looked at three groups of volunteers at the front line of the protests. They were elderly people, first aiders and volunteer lawyers. I covered a young barrister who provided pro bono legal assistance for protesters around the clock. Link to the story here.

I wouldn’t have made it this far without the help from many people and their efforts deserved a great round of applause.

Thank you, World Media Festivals!

  1. Well done and well deserved awards for both stories! I presume it will be increasingly difficult for media to further investigate on Xinjiang in future.
    Definitely Frontline Volunteers of different roles deserve every recognition, and their stories are meaningful and important part of Hong Kong history.
