The aim of the project is to finish investigating where she left off, led by Forbidden Stories.
The New York Times, The Guardian, Reuters, Le Monde, Die Zeit, the Süddeutsche Zeitung, OCCRP, France 2, Radio France, The Times of Malta, IRPI, La Repubblica, NDR, WDR, Tages-Anzeiger, Direkt36, and Radio NZ are among the news organisations collaborating on the project.
Two other projects are competing against the Daphne Project.
Thirteen of the awards will receive $58,500 in prize money.
