In case people missed it -  T Christian Miller, a senior reporter with Creative Commons-licensed news service ProPublica, was awarded the 2010 Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting. The prize, which is administered by the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, has been running for 21 years and is worth $35 000 (USD) in prize money.

Miller was bestowed the honour for his on-going reporting which called attention to the plight of civilian workers injured in Iraq. The reporting project, "Disposable Army", was planned and edited in a collaboration between ProPublica and the Los Angeles Times and saw LA Times photographer Francine Orr and database editor Doug Smith work collaboratively with Miller. Content from the project was published in print (LA Times, The Washington Post), online (, ProPublica, and on television (ABC News).

The reportage, like all content (except photos) on the ProPublica site, is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States licence.
