NPR.org, a division of NPR, has been awarded the 2010 Excellence in Online Journalism Award for “deep and rich content,” the National Press Foundation has announced.



“The richness and diversity of all online offerings this year was deeply impressive,” said NPF president Bob Meyers. “NPR.org was the consensus choice of the judges because of its deep, rich content and the impressive work in mobile applications they’ve developed.”



Receiving Honorable Mentions in the judging were the Associated Press, KPBS (San Diego) and The Wall Street Journal.



The judges were Sandy Johnson, Center for Public Integrity; Len Apcar, The New York Times; Jim Brady, former executive editor of Washingtonpost.com; Jacqueline Thomas, formerly with the Indianapolis Star; Jon Sawyer, executive director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting; and Bob Meyers.



The Associated Press was cited for its interactive story packages that involve video, graphics and interactive features; one of them can be found at http://hosted.ap.org/specials/interactives/_international/iraq_war/. KPBS, in San Diego, was cited for a deep package of stories on the financial costs of the state’s “tough on crime” prison system, at a time when so many inmates are aging (www.kpbs.org/prisons). The Wall Street Journal was cited for its intense news and reporting packages that enriched its online presence (www.wsj.com).



Other award winners this year include Andrea Mitchell, NBC News and MSNBC; Albert Hunt of Bloomberg News; and Mark Silverman of The Tennessean. Information about all award winners can be found at www.nationalpress.org/awards.



The awards will be given at the 28th annual National Press Foundation Awards Dinner, March 1, 2011, at the Hilton Washington Hotel. For information about the dinner contact Kerry@nationalpress.org. For information about NPF and its activities contact bob@nationalpress.org.
