The Wall Street Journal has won the Malcolm Forbes Award from the Overseas Press Club, which recognizes the best international business reporting in newspapers, news services and magazines.

The reporters were Nick Kostov and Sean McLain, and their coverage was on former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.

The judges wrote, “Kostov and McLain’s persistent enterprise over the course of the year helped Journal readers solve a great mystery.”

The Journal earned three OPC awards, including reporting and photography prizes for the same story about a Swedish man trying to rescue his seven grandchildren from ISIS hands in Syria.

The Morton Frank Award for best international business news reporting in TV, video, radio, audio or podcast went to Rick Young, Emma Schwartz, Laura Sullivan and Fritz Kramer of Frontline PBS for  “Trump’s Trade War.

The judges wrote, “The report did an excellent job of guiding viewers through an up-close understanding of the places, from Wenzhou, China to cities in Ohio, and the people, including President Trump himself, who forged this confrontation between the United States and China.”
