Innovative Storytelling, first prize singles


A generation ago, globalization shrank the world. Nations linked by trade and technology began to erase old boundaries. But now barriers are rising again, driven by waves of migration, spillover from wars and the growing threat of terrorism.

To examine this global phenomenon, the Washington Post produced Raising Barriers, a three-part multimedia project that takes viewers to eight countries across three continents exploring the divisions between countries and peoples.
