Pulitzer Center grantee Louie Palu's "Borderline" series for the Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail, has been nominated for a Canadian Online Publishing Award (COPA) for 2013 in the category of best online-only article or series. The COPAs honor excellence in digital journalism and design from Canadian magazines, newspapers, broadcasters and online-only publishers.
Palu's project was supported by the New America Foundation, where Palu was a Bernard Shwartz fellow, and the Pulitzer Center.
"Borderline" is the result of Palu's year-long study along the U.S.-Mexico border documenting important issues in the region related to drug-fueled and gang-led violence, immigration, and the American effort to keep smugglers and migrants out.
Palu's other honors for his work include placing first in the "Eyes of History" contest hosted by the White House News Photographers Association, placing second in the Pictures of the Year International competition, and becoming a finalist for the eighth annual Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize.
The winner of the online award of best-online article or series will be announced in November 2013.
