On February 6, 2020, the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) announced that the Pulitzer Center-supported Vox series, "These 3 Supertrees Can Protect Us From Climate Collapse," was chosen as a finalist for ASME's Ellie Award for Feature Design in the 2020 National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media.
"These 3 Supertrees Can Protect Us From Climate Collapse" focuses on three trees, located in Brazil, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo respectively, that provide great benefits to the entire world while being at the center of the climate crisis. The series was created in part by Pulitzer Center grantees Eliza Barclay, Tristan McConnell, Umair Irfan, Sarah Waiswa, and Victor Moriyama.
The National Magazine Awards recognize innovative, inspiring, and magazine-quality journalism published in any medium. ASME will celebrate the 55th annual presentation of the Ellie Awards and honor the 112 finalists on Thursday, March 12, at Brooklyn Steel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
