2014 Year in Review: Our Editorial Awards
It’s been another successful year for The Globe and we are very proud of our editorial achievements. Here’s highlights of the industry recognition we have received in the past year.
The Globe has been awarded Best News Website and Best Home Page from the prestigious Eppy Awards. The award for Best News Website, shared with The New Yorker, marks the first time we have won this ultimate recognition.
This is the second year in a row The Globe and Mail has won for Best Home Page. The EPPY Awards, presented by the U.S.-based journal Editor and Publisher, recognize the best media-affiliated websites across 31 diverse categories.
The Globe and our journalists were nominated for four other awards:
- Best News/Event Feature (for a special package on the North); http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/the-north/
- Best Investigative/Enterprise Feature (for coverage of the Lac-Mégantic, Que., disaster); http://www.theglobeandmail.com/topic/Lac-Mégantic,-Quebec
- Best Business Blog (for Michael Babad’s Business Briefing); http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/top-business-stories/
- Best Daily Newspaper Website. www.theglobeandmail.com
6 Digital Design Awards from the Society For News Design.
The Globe is one of only two Canadian news organizations to make the list, which includes The Guardian, The New York Times, NPR, The WSJ, Reuters, National Geographic and The Washington Post.
Noteworthy, the digital design awards are not awarded to individual journalists, but to an organization as a whole, to recognize their collective work in innovative storytelling and digital journalism. The Globe’s winning entries speak to the collaborative work of the video, digital, graphics, photo and design departments, reporters and editors.
Here are the winning entries:
- How income inequality hurts every Canadian’s chance of a building a better life
- Is Canada’s Future in the North?
- Proof that young adults have it worse (much worse) than 30 years ago
- The Data behind R.A. Dickey: A Pitch-by-Pitch breakdown of his 2012 Season
