ZEKE Award Winners

  • Awake in the Desert Land  by Sofia Aldinio
    This ongoing project documents how climate change is uprooting small, inland and coastal communities in Baja California, Mexico that depend directly on natural resources to survive and thereby threatening cultural heritage.

  • Path Away by Nicolò Filippo Rosso
    Two months after Hurricanes Eta and Iota hit Central America, 11 thousand people gathered in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, starting the first migrants' caravan of the year directed to the U.S. The migrants’ crossing through gang-controlled areas, deserts, and jungles was made even harder by the pandemic.
