  • Beijing-based reporter Dake Kang and AP staff, investigative reporting, for reporting that held China accountable for its early mishandling of COVID-19 and human rights violations against the Uyghurs.
  • Photographers Hassan Ammar, Felipe Dana and Hussein Malla, breaking news photography, for images of the immediate aftermath of the Beirut port explosion that leveled part of the city.
