The award recognises content that highlights actions by a state, government, corporation, organisation or individual resulting in improvements in the lives of individuals or in society as a whole. The two-part series, a follow-up to CNA’s 2016 groundbreaking documentary on race, revisits the issue in the wake of multiple reports of racist incidents in Singapore since the pandemic began. Through a series of social experiments, it attempts to uncover the hard truths on how and why people are racially biased. The programme was hosted by Senior Minister of State Janil Puthucheary.
Mediacorp announced the wins in a news release on Thursday (Jun 23).
