Journalists from Spain, Argentina, Colombia Honored

MONTERREY, Mexico – The Ibero-American New Journalism Foundation, headed by Nobel literature laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, awarded its annual prizes to journalists from Spain’s Cadena Ser, Argentine Web site Clarin.com and the independent Colombian television network Uno.

The foundation also honored Mexican journalist Miguel Angel Granados Chapa for his 40-year career in the field.

The award ceremony was held in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey, an event which Garcia Marquez has attended for the past eight years but which this time he was unable to make because he is suffering from “a bad flu.”

In radio, the organization honored Spanish communicator Marta Del Vado, of Cadena Ser, for her work “Los muros del mundo” (The walls of the world), which deals with the theme of barriers that divide the world, such as that which the United States is building along its border with Mexico to deter illegal migrants.

Reporters Maria Arce and Paula Lugones of Clarin.com were recognized for their work entitled “Ruta 66, el largo camino hacia la Casa Blanca” (Route 66: the long road toward the White House), in the Internet category.

In the area of television, a team of Colombian journalists from the independent network Uno, headed by Daniel Coronell, were honored for their work entitled “Un murder casi perfecto” (An almost perfect murder).

And in the Career category, Mexican journalist Granados Chapa was recognized for his lengthy career.

At this edition of the awards ceremony honoring the best in Ibero-American journalism, which is sponsored jointly by the fondation and cement-maker Cemex, Garcia Marquez presented a statement in which he said he regretted his absence.

“I’m the first one to regret that due to the flu I cannot be there this year to present this award along with (Cemex CEO) Lorenzo Zambrano,” said the Colombian writer in a statement read at the ceremony.

“I congratulate all the winners and finalists because they showed themselves to be the best, and I express my admiration for that formidable journalist who is Miguel Angel Granados Chapa,” Garcia Marquez added.

At this year’s ceremony, each of the winners in radio, TV and Internet received $25,000, while Granados Chapa’s award was accompanied by $30,000. EFE
