In June 2018, three Pulitzer Center grantees, Lynsey Addario, Aryn Baker, and Francesca Trianni, won two Edward R. Murrow Awards for Excellence in Social Media and Excellence in Innovation for their project "Finding Home."

Photographer Lynsey Addario, international correspondent Aryn Baker, and videographer Francesca Trianni of TIME worked together for over a year to create "Finding Home." They followed the journeys of four families at the heart of the European refugee crisis as they fled violence at home for the hope of stability in Europe. Begininning in late 2016, the team documented the families' stories as they tried to raise their children and build new lives in spite of the turmoil and uncertainty they faced because of their refugee status. The project gave a voice to the thousands of refugees navigating life in refugee camps, seeking asylum in Europe, and trying to build new lives in foreign countries. As part of their project, they launched a social media campaign on Instagram at the handle @findinghome and with the hashtag #TIMEFindingHome. See the full TIME multimedia presentation here.

The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDA) has been administering the Murrow Awards each year since 1971 to honor exceptional electronic journalism. The awards commemorate Edward R. Murrow, a war correspondent who became a household name due to his live radio broadcasts from Europe during World War II.

The full list of winners is available on the RTDNA website.
