The Rory Peck Award finalists were announced on Monday 12 September. It turns out I’ve made it to one of the three finalists of the news section for the coverage of the Egyptian revolution. The rushes above are those that were sent out of Cairo by one of the few working Internet connections in the city during the uprising, after President Mubarak closed all communications to the outside world. Unfortunately for him, he missed a few.
