Post reporter takes home award


Phnom Penh Post senior reporter May Titthara on Tuesday night was one of 12 Cambodian journalists to receive the Cambodian Club of Journalists’ Child Friendship Award, sponsored by Plan International.


The prize, awarded at a ceremony at Phnom Penh’s Cambodiana hotel, was earned for his article Prison through the eyes of a child, a report about children living with their mothers inside the walls of Prey Sar prison.

The piece ran in the November 28 editions of the Post and its sister Khmer-language publication.

Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith was on hand to present the award, which included a new Canon SX150 IS camera.

It’s not the first time May Titthara has come in for journalistic honours. In 2009, he earned the Society of Publishers award in Asia’s Excellence in Human Rights Reporting.
