post.com Wins Local Emmy, Murrow Award
washingtonpost.com has been the recipient of two major awards in the past few weeks.
First, video journalist Ben de la Cruz became the first washingtonpost.com staffer ever to win a local Emmy Award. Ben won "Best Public/Current/Community Affairs Program or Special" for his "Homeless in D.C." series. This award came in one of the most hotly contested categories in the competition, with 22 entries. Only one other category had more entries. Here's a full list of winners.
Earlier this week, washingtonpost.com was awarded an Edward R. Murrow Award for "Best Non-Broadcast Affiliated Website. " It's the third straight year we've won that award, handed out by the Radio and Television News Directors Association.
The projects entered in this contest were:
-- Affordable Housing, by Ben de la Cruz.
-- A Life Lived in 4/4 Time, by Christina Pino-Marina.
-- Katrina Coverage.
-- Following the Money in Afghanistan, by Christina Pino-Marina and Pierre Kattar.
-- Special Report on Lebanon, by Pierre Kattar.
-- Aceh, by Travis Fox.
Here's a full list of Murrow Award winners.
These two awards are the latest honors in a year in which washingtonpost.com has been the most nominated and most honored news site in both the Digital Edge and Eppy competitions. Considering the amazing work being done in all corners of the Web these days, we're honored to be among the sites recognized.
Thanks as well to our readers, who have played a large part in the success of the site by building active communities all over the site and consistently providing advice on how to improve washingtonpost.com.
