'Preventive Journalism' Prize Finalists, Online Journalism Winners Announced
Understanding Government, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit, announced last week its 10 finalists for the new $50,000 Prize for Preventive Journalism and the Online News Association announced its annual winners for the best web journalism.
The field for the Preventive Journalism Prize is made up largely of investigative reporting that prompted potentially life-altering reform and change. The winner will be announced Sept. 30.
"Designed to spark reporting on problems before they explode into crises, and encourage journalists to include potential solutions in their reporting, the Prize for Preventive Journalism is one of the largest in its field," according to the award criteria.
The Online News Association awards those who are "emblematic of the best in online journalism." Those winners were announced Saturday at the organization's annual conference in Washington.
