TIME & Fortune
Paris Area, France

Vivienne Walt is this year's SABEW winner for international reporting, small and medium publications. She has written since 2003 for TIME Magazine, which she first joined as a correspondent while covering the Iraq War. She also writes for Fortune Magazine. For both, she's traveled through most of Africa, the Middle East, and Europe focusing on war and conflict, and the human toll wrought by Western business operations, from diamonds to oil exploration. In the past few months, she's written a long dispatch from Baghdad reflecting on 15 years of war, and another from Saudi Arabia, describing the fast-changing economic and social pressures. And she spent time back-stage with Barcelona Football Club to describe the phenomenon of the world's first billion-dollar team.
She is a board member of the Overseas Press Club of America, and a regular juror for the OPC awards and the Prix Bayeux for war correspondents.
