This category honors excellence in online feature journalism (such as profiles, analyses, reviews, etc.). Successful entries not only demonstrate the highest standards of journalism, but also make creative and appropriate uses of media and design, and maximize digital and mobile platforms to engage and inform audiences.
Tips for Winning:
Keep in mind two important truths:
1. Superior journalism
2. Dedication to maximizing the power of digital platforms.
Additionally, the judges will be asking these questions:
• “What impact did this story have?”
• “How does this entry really take advantage of the web?”
• “Would this piece be any different if it appeared solely in print?”
Lastly, keep in mind that the more you can help judges better understand how your stories best embrace the fundamentals of great journalism — impact, relevance, newsworthiness — and do so by best leveraging the power of digital platforms, the better chance you have of winning an award.
