Itai Anghel
Itai Anghel, who was just awarded the 'Sokolov Prize' (the Israeli equivalent of Pulitzer Prize) - is known for his fieldwork and in-depth documentaries. He has the unique ability to deeply and fearlessly explore the most dangerous hot spots around the globe, while forging connections with the subjects in his films. He has covered conflicts in Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Rwanda, Kenya, Congo, Lebanon, Gaza, Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, and Syria.

For the past six years, his work has won the award for 'Best TV Documentary' on behalf of the 'Israeli forum for documentary filmmakers' on five separate occasions. In 2010 Mr. Anghel won the 'Cutting edge award' in the 'International Media Awards' in London for his "superb and unbiased cover of the Middle East". Besides his journalistic portfolio, Itai Anghel also founded a humanitarian project to help women raped in the civil war in Congo, where Israeli gynecologists set up clinics in the jungles of East Congo and ongoing guidance to local medical and nursing personnel.

Mr. Anghel is also a lecturer on world conflicts at Tel Aviv University and IDC In Herzliya. Last summer he was a guest lecturer at Harvard University. Currently, Itai Anghel is one of 18 selected journalists from all over the world who was awarded the Knight-Wallace fellowship at the University of Michigan.
