The prestigious 2013 George Polk Awards in Journalism have recognized the three journalists who with The Guardian broke the National Security Agency revelations from Edward Snowden.

The Guardian reports:

Glenn Greenwald, Ewen MacAskill and Laura Poitras will receive the award for national security reporting, along with Barton Gellman of the Washington Post.

Janine Gibson, Guardian US editor-in-chief, said: “We’re honoured by the recognition from the Polk awards and delighted for Ewen, Glenn, Laura, Barton and their colleagues that their work has been recognised.
