The program by Caminhos da Reportagem, from TV Brazil, won third place in the videojournalism category of the II Geneton Moraes Neto Journalism Award. The award-winning episode is called “Um Brazil without basics”, with a report by Ana Graziela Aguiar, and shows the problems and solutions for basic sanitation in the country.
At the end of November, the Judging Committee of the II Geneton Moraes Neto Journalism Award concluded the analysis of the 24 journalistic works entered in the competition, 13 in the videojournalism category and 11 in the journalistic text category.
According to Ana Graziela Aguiar, the team that worked on the production is extremely happy, as this is the second consecutive time they have won the Award, and also for the recognition on a topic.
The program’s reporting team visited the states of Pará, Amapá, Federal District, Alagoas and São Paulo to portray the different realities of basic sanitation in the country. The episode shows that the lack of basic sanitation can bring a series of diseases and cause various impacts on the environment.
“It was rewarding to walk through several states in Brazil and show what the reality of water and sewage treatment is like and that, in a country permeated by so many rivers, it is essential to talk about basic sanitation, which is a human right”, added Ana Graziela.
