More than 600 journalists from 117 countries and territories spent over a year digging through nearly 12 million files from 14 offshore service providers to uncover how politicians, business leaders, celebrities and more hide their money.
Our award-winners will discuss how they collaborated with reporters around the globe, the eye-opening stories they produced, and the impact their published investigations are only beginning to have. The journalists will also share their thoughts on the global offshore industry, and the power of cross-border collaboration in producing journalism that influences critical change.
