China Daily Asia Pa­cific’s mul­ti­me­dia re­porter Marc La­joie won the En­vi­ron­men­tal Story of the Year at this year’s Asian En­vi­ron­men­tal Jour­nal­ism Awards held in Sin­ga­pore on Wed­nes­day.

The awards were in­tro­duced by the NGO, Sin­ga­pore En­vi­ron­ment Coun­cil, which re­ceived a record 234 en­tries for 11 awards this year. It rec­og­nizes out­stand­ing jour­nal­ists who put Asia’s en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues at the fore­front through “qual­ity re­port­ing, ar­rest­ing images and com­pelling facts”.

La­joie’s mul­ti­me­dia project “Ship­ping’s Dirty Se­crets”, part of China Daily Asia Pa­cific’s quar­terly RedLet­ter Projects was pub- lished i n May. It closely ex­am­ines how the fast-grow­ing ship­ping in­dus­try in Asia is lag­ging be­hind other places in terms of reg­u­la­tions and how dif­fer­ent coun­tries, and also the in­dus­try it­self, have shunned their obli­ga­tions in cut­ting down ship- ping e mis­sions. This is caus­ing se­ri­ous pol­lu­tion in the re­gion and tak­ing the lives of tens of thou­sands of peo­ple each year.

The project in­te­grates texts, rich graph­ics, grav­i­tat­ing videos and in­ter­ac­tive me­dia to dis­sect a com­pli­cat- ed and sub­ject in an au­di­ence-friendly way. The project is adapt­able and can be viewed in both desk­top and mo­bile de­vices.
