Tristan McConnell


I’ve been a foreign correspondent in Africa since 2004 and am currently a regional correspondent for GlobalPost (USA), The Times (UK) and Monocle magazine (UK). I cover conflicts in DR Congo, Somalia, the Sudans and elsewhere. I regularly travel to Somalia and have covered the war there since 2010. In 2014 my reporting from Somalia was shortlisted for the Bayeux-Calvados Awards for War Correspondents and the Kurt Schork Awards for International Journalism. My reportage from DR Congo, Somalia and Sudan was shortlisted for the One World Media Awards and Kurt Schork Awards in 2013.
