TECHNICAL INNOVATION AWARD ELIGIBILITY
For the Technical Innovation award, any company, journalistic in focus or not, may enter a digital tool it created which, in the organization’s estimation, significantly enhances the practice of online journalism. The publication date restrictions for this award refer to the date of the initial release or substantial upgrade to this product. Judges will weigh the breadth and timeliness of an entrant’s impact on the journalistic community.
Review all entry requirements for each category before submitting an entry. Requirements vary depending on the category. Basic requirements include a URL where the entry is live and a username and password if the entry requires a subscription or registration. Requirements can be found on the categories page.
If an entry exists on a platform that is not available via a desktop computer, such as a smartphone or tablet application, entrants should provide a URL to a marketplace page where the application can be downloaded free of charge. If applicants are submitting entries that requires installation of an app or some other technical requirement beyond the typical browser, please note that in your entry.
If submitting multiple entries (either in the same category or across multiple categories), fill out entry forms for each entry, then make one purchase for all of the entries you submitted. You may enter the same item into more than one category, if you choose.
Entries can be saved and edited at a later date, but corrections cannot be made to entries after submitting. Please verify that all the information in your entry is correct before submitting.
