The 2008 David Watt Prize awarded to Jonathan Freedland

The winner of the 2008 David Watt Prize for journalism is Jonathan Freedland, for his article published in The New York Review of Books entitled Bush’s amazing achievement, which appeared in June 2007 and examined in detail the effects of the Bush presidency.

The prize was awarded at a presentation lunch by chairman of the judging panel Paul Skinner, who is also chairman of mining group Rio Tinto.

Skinner applauded the winning article and the very high calibre of the others on the shortlist, which included Michela Wrong’s The bucks stop here, published in the Financial Times, and Andrew Miller’s The warlord and the spook, published in The Economist.
