Grand Prize

Yee-Chong Lee was awarded the Lorenzo Natali Grand Prize in 2009 for his TV report: “Sichuan Earthquake – One year on”, broadcast on Now TV in China. The deadly quake in Sichuan on 12 May 2008 claimed as many as 50 000 lives, and he spent one month there covering the disaster for the news channel. The relatives of victims claimed the huge death toll was caused by the poor condition of buildings and structures. Yee-Chong Lee and his camera crew headed back to the epicentre to investigate and although the Chinese government denied it, the victims’ relatives did their best to make themselves heard.
