2019 James Foley Award for Conflict Reporting winner

Tomas Ayuso

About Tomas

Tomas Ayuso is the fifth recipient of the James Foley Award, which honors digital journalists who produce exceptional reporting under the most challenging conditions. The selection committee was impressed with his unflinching coverage of conflict in Latin America as it relates to the drug war, forced displacement and urban dispossession.

Tomas’ work includes the ongoing project “The Right to Grow Old,” a series of stories that examine why Hondurans are fleeing their country, how they do it and their displacement in Mexico. He has also covered different fronts of Mexico’s drug war, post-conflict reality in Colombia and the impact of climate change in the Caribbean.
