Sarah Stillman is a New York-based journalist. She has written about Iraq and Afghanistan for several publications or online sites, including Slate, The Washington Post, the Nation and the Dallas Morning News.
Stillman, the inaugural winner of the New York University Carter Journalism Institute’s Reporting Award, has added two trophies to her mantle. Her piece in the June 6, 2011 issue of the New Yorker was entitled “Invisible Army.” She documents poor treatment of Third-World nationals working on U.S. military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Sarah’s compelling story is a perfect representation of the work we’re trying to encourage at a time of cutbacks in editorial budgets,” said Stephen Solomon, associate director of the Institute.
The Reporting Award, in its second year, funds articles on under-reported subjects in the public interest.
Stillman was decorated with the Hillman Prize for Magazine Journalism and National Magazine Award in the category of public interest.
