APME offers new Gannett award for watchdog journalism
The Gannett Foundation Award for Innovation in Watchdog Journalism will be offered for the first time this year as part of the annual APME contest.
Description: This award recognizes groundbreaking work by a journalist or a staff that creatively uses digital tools in the role of being a community's watchdog. Special consideration is given to journalism that helps a community understand and address important issues. Criteria for evaluating innovation include interactivity, creation of new tools, innovative adaptation of existing tools, and creative use of any digital medium. An entry will consist of a single story, series or package on a single subject.
Entries will be judged by APME. Two winners will be selected, with each receiving $2,500.
Plan to have entries for all APME contests submitted by June 1. Complete details will be online soon.
