Top Newspaper Sites Win Digital Edge Awards

I am a little late on this, but just for the record here is the list of Edgie Awards given by the Newpaper Association of America for newspaper websites.

Here is information from the NAA:

This year’s winners were selected from 187 entries in 10 categories– Best Overall News Site, Most Innovative Multimedia Storytelling, Best Design and Site Architecture, Most Innovative Visitor Participation, Best Entertainment Site, Best Local Shopping & Directory Strategy, Best Automotive Strategy, Best Real Estate Strategy, Best Employment Strategy and Best Advertising Program.

If nothing else, it is worth clicking around to see exactly how exciting or not, newspaper sites are. Ken Sands of the Spokesman Review tipped me off to the awards. Here might be why, under the best overall news sites headings:

Best Overall News Site, Circulation Less Than 50,000 (Kan.) Journal-World

Repeating as the winner in the Best Overall News Site category, continues its reign as a strong, clever news provider that has earned its reputation for interactivity, responsiveness and innovation.

Best Overall News Site, Circulation 50,001 to 99,999 Modesto (Calif.) Bee

This well-structured, cleanly designed site impresses with its welcomed use of blogs, interactive storytelling and intensely local coverage of news that matters to Modesto residents.

Best Overall News Site, Circulation 100,000 to 249,999 Spokesman-Review

Working under the banner of “the transparent newsroom,” surpasses the competition by infusing the full support and resources of its news operation into the site. Equally passionate about compelling, multimedia journalism and the voices in its community, is a news site to emulate.

Best Overall News Site, Circulation Greater than 250,000 Washington Post

Pushing the boundaries of a multimedia news site, is building a model of a newspaper Web site as an interactive forum. The site’s breadth of coverage, video storytelling and embrace of blog culture and collaborative media make it a standout.
