WILLIAM BRANIGIN AND KEITH RICHBURG OF THE WASHINGTON POST WIN 1993 KORN/FERRY INTERNATIONAL JOURNALISM AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN UN REPORTING

 NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- William Branigin and Keith Richburg, reporters for the Washington Post, were selected by a panel of 11 leading judges as the 1993 recipients of the Korn/Ferry Journalism Award for Excellence in United Nations Reporting. The award recognizes U.S. journalists who contribute most significantly to the understanding of the United Nations. Mr. Branigin and Mr. Richburg were chosen for their four-part series of articles entitled "The U.N. Empire."
 The journalism award was established in 1989 by Korn/Ferry International, the world's leading executive search firm, in cooperation with the Business Council for the United Nations. Stanley Meisler, a correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, was last year's winner. Previous award recipients include Jeanne Moos, a news correspondent of CNN, and Paul Lewis, United Nations correspondent for The New York Times, who was the first recipient of the annual award.
 Mr. Branigin and Mr. Richburg will be officially honored for their achievements at the BCUN Ambassador's dinner today in New York, where they will share the first-place prize of $5,000.
 Richard M. Ferry, chairman and chief executive officer of Korn/Ferry International, said, "William Branigin and Keith Richburg's four-part series was the most comprehensive journalistic piece ever done about the world body. Their intensive reporting took the reader on a detailed journey through one of the world's most important and least examined institutions. We are pleased to recognize their important work."
 The judges for the 1993 Korn/Ferry International Journalism Award were William E. Ahearn, executive editor, Associated Press; Dennis A. Britton, editor, Chicago Sun-Times; Shelby Coffey, editor, Los Angeles Times; Steven Geinmann, executive editor, United Press International; William German, executive editor, San Francisco Chronicle; John H.

Woo, editor, St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
 The Korn/Ferry Journalism Award is open to entries from any journalist from the commercial print or broadcast media that are published or aired in the United States.
