Amnesty award nomination for the Bureau of Investigative Journalism

SM&B client, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, has been nominated for an Amnesty Digital Media Award for its work on the Wikileaks Iraq War Logs.

The Bureau was one of a small number of media outlets worldwide which received raw data from Wikileaks in 2010 and copiously evaluated and analysed the documentation before publishing and bringing into the public domain wide-ranging revelations about the conduct of the war in Iraq and its ongoing aftermath. SM&B partner, Stephen Shotnes, advised the Bureau about its publication of the material.
