In the last year Marty has focused on migrant stories. He conducted an investigation into how wage theft disproportionately affects migrants. “Shadow Workers” proved to be a shocking snapshot of the life of international students and asylum seekers trying to make a living in Australia.

“This entry was an immediate standout for the judges. Original, creative and compelling. The storytelling choices — including interesting interview locations, plotting the story alongside chess moves, and getting one of the talent to provide the soundtrack — all added to a theatrical and engaging documentary-style piece. The entry made politics interesting and accessible to a younger audience.”
