YouTube named the winner of its first journalist contest on Sunday. Arturo Perez Jr took the top prize in the Project:Report competition, which saw participants enter short films in three rounds of video assignments.
Perez was awarded the $10,000 funding prize to travel and work with the Pulitzer Center to produce a report at a ceremony on Sunday night. His winning entry ‘Abilities’ featured residents of Camphill, California – a community where adults with developmental disabilities live, learn and work together – documenting their day-to-day lives on video.
