Eight years after the 2014 Sewol Ferry disaster that claimed the lives of 304 passengers, Korean journalists were asked about work-related trauma in a survey developed by the Journalists Association of Korea (JAK), the Korean Women Journalists Association, the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma Asia Pacific (DCAP), and the Google News Initiative. The survey was completed by 544 journalists (62% male and 38% female). Eight out of ten had experienced work-related trauma, while nearly 30% said they had experienced trauma at work regularly.

Judges praised "They Were Sons" for painting “a full picture of the men who died and what it means to lose them,” and for showing the reader the “human shaped holes in the lives of their mothers.” They called the “powerful, first-person storytelling” “unfiltered and unvarnished,” and praised its ability to “capture pride and pain at the same time,” providing a “sense of all that lingers for families after the headlines and social media outrage passes.” They applauded Rita Omokha's “self-effacement and courage,” calling her work “a profound exercise of journalistic responsibility” and “an act of refusal of the easy reporting path.” Originally published by Vanity Fair on May 6, 2021.
The judges described A Feast for Lost Souls as a “deeply moving piece” that “stirs our collective empathy” and “gives voice to the unspeakable.” They praised writer Annelise Jolley and photographer Zahara Gómez Lucini for “letting their subjects grieve and breathe in their own time” and for providing the reader with a “real connection to their pain.” They applauded the team’s “exquisite attention to even the smallest of details,” and for respectfully shining a light on these “resilient, brilliant women” who possess "so much agency in the face of such devastation.” Originally published by The Atavist on November 30, 2021.
