Mychaylo Prystupa award journalism Jack Webster Globe and MailI am an award-winning video and online journalist with 13 years experience in TV broadcasting, national news and independent media.

Recently, I co-won a Jack Webster journalism award for “Weigh Anchor” —a Globe and Mail special interactive report on oil tanker safety issues.  I do data journalism, video stories, investigative digs, and drone work too.

My foreign assignment work has included VJ projects in China, Uganda, Philippines, United Kingdom, France and the U.S.

I currently freelance for the Globe and Mail, The Tyee and other digital publications, and entertain video projects.

At CBC News, I filed more than 1,000 TV stories across Canada as a reporter and video journalist. I also shot, edited and produced a documentary in China for the National that won an Honourable Mention from the Columbus International Film & Video Festival in 2007.

In Vancouver’s independent media scene, I have written some 200 online stories, with dozens of the articles going super viral.

At the start of my career, I also produced a fundraising film in Cambodia for a surgical charity that helps blind people see and children walk again with free, corrective interventions. The film raised $85,000 to build a new ward for patients.

I also enjoy teaching video journalism at the InFocus Film School in Vancouver.
