Please note we have updated the award description and qualifications for the 2012 award in light of the changing field of internet journalism. We look forward to a diverse group of entries for this award.
The Excellence in Online Journalism Award recognizes significant achievements in the field of internet journalism. This award will be presented to an individual journalist or a media organization for outstanding use of online technology producing quality journalism. This can be as broad as an exceptional website, an innovative tablet or mobile website, or as specific as a creative app or the excellent use of digital media to report from the scene of a story. Judges will take into consideration both the quality of the journalistic work and the innovative use of online technology to honor the best intersection of the two. The award is presented at the Annual Awards Dinner. Nominations are being accepted for this award from external parties as well as internally from award committee members. Only U.S. based journalists and organizations are eligible for this award.
Entries should showcase journalistic achievement during the period of September 1, 2011 through September 1, 2012. Entries will only be accepted through the online form and were due by 5 pm Monday, October 15, 2012. Winners will be announced shortly.
