Winner of the Excellence in Investigative Reporting Award at the 2020 Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) Awards. In their comments, the SOPA judges wrote: "This was one of the most engaging and impactful entries and makes for fascinating reading and watching. By putting the spotlight on this disturbing corner of the Internet, Coconuts helped to raise awareness about unregulated aspects of YouTube that can facilitate abuse and child pornography, among other things. Good legwork and followup and a presentation that leaves the reader wanting to know more. Truly a fascinating deep dive into the depths of the Internet."
