On Friday, April 17, Amnesty International announced the winners of the 25th annual Amnesty International Canada Media Awards. Grantees Jillian Kestler-D'Amours and Megan O'Toole, who reported on the planned expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline and how it affects the surrounding communities, won the award in the mixed media category.
For their project "Canada's Pipeline Battle," Kestler-D'Amours and O'Toole traveled the 2,000-kilometre Trans Mountain pipeline route from Burnaby, B.C. to Edmonton, Alberta, interviewing stakeholders in the multi-billion-dollar expansion. The project takes readers on a journey along the pipeline path, using 360° footage to highlight key sites in Alberta and British Columbia.
