Clare Sambrook shortlisted for the 2010 Paul Foot award

Last week I wrote about the tremendous efforts of journalist and author Clare Sambrook,  who has taught me so much about about acts of journalism outside journalism through the campaign to end child detention in immigration centres.

I’m so excited that she has made the shortlist for the Paul Foot Award 2010, an annual Guardian/Private Eye prize rewarding outstanding campaigning journalism.  Check out Clare’s lengthy publication list, as reported by the Guardian (my emphasis):

The shortlisted journalists are, in alphabetical order: Jonathan Calvert and Clare Newell, the Sunday Times; David Cohen, the Evening Standard; Nick Davies, the Guardian; Linda Geddes, the New Scientist; Eamonn McCann, the Irish Times, the Belfast Newsletter and the Guardian; Clare Sambrook, openDemocracy, the Observer, the Daily Telegraph, the Independent, the Guardian Community Care, Big Issue in the North, Morning Star, Counterfire, Nursery World, Private Eye, Manchester Mule, Baptist Times, Cumberland Herald, Cumberland News, Quaker Asylum & Refugee Network, Independent Catholic News, New Londoners, Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants Bulletin, and on other campaigning blogs.

Clare’s full media campaign can be seen on her own website and also on
