The Online New Association’s Online Journalism Awards have a few Minnesota names among the nominees this year:
Outstanding Use of Digital Media: The Star Tribune for A PEOPLE TORN: Liberians in Minnesota
Beat Reporting: Minnesota Monitor for GLBT issues based on the link.
The winner get $5000 from the Knight Foundation. It’s not clear to me if that means the winner if each category or the winner of the primary category. I’m hoping it goes to someone other than ESPN or the NY Times since it would might cost them more than $5000 to receive $5000.
It’s interesting to see what journalists find interesting. Would the Liberia piece in the Star Tribune have been ranked #1 by web users in Minnesota for Outstanding Use of Digital Media? What would web stats tell us?
