NPF Award Winner: Innovative Storytelling Award - NPR and the University of Maryland’s Howard Center for Investigative Journalism & Capital News Service

NPR and the University of Maryland’s Howard Center for Investigative Journalism & Capital News Service 2019

Lucy Dalglish, dean of the university’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, said of the award: “This was the first major project from the Howard Center, and that it was our students competing against the top professional news organizations in the country makes this prestigious honor mean even more to Merrill College. The ‘Code Red’ project put the future of journalism on display, with its data visualizations, motion graphics and sensor technology, illustrating how young journalists can use new techniques and methods to serve communities.”

“We’re particularly proud of the way our team and the Howard Center’s journalists worked together to produce something so engaging and important,” said Robert Little, NPR’s senior investigations editor. “Collaborations like this are key to NPR’s strategy to serve its audience, and we’re excited to do more.”
