Post Series on the Death of Freddie Gray and its Aftermath Wins Washington-Baltimore News Guild Grand Prize
Washington Post reporter Terrence McCoy’s eight-part series on the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody in Baltimore, and its aftermath won the Grand Prize for writing and reporting in 2015 from the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild. The Grand Prize for Photography, by Baltimore Sun photographer Kim Hairston, entitled “Saturday Protester Jumps,”also arose out of the Freddie Gray aftermath. It shows a protester against the death jumping on the flatbed of a truck and exhorting the crowd, whose members are paying rapt attention. The Sun, the Post and Bloomberg-BNA dominated the awards. The Guild represents those publications and workers at 28 other newspapers, media outlets, union staffs, associations and magazines.
