The Scripps Howard Foundation’s annual National Journalism Awards include one category for online work:

Web Reporting Award

“Honors the news organization that demonstrates the best use of new media technologies and innovative techniques to report on a news story or news event while maintaining the highest journalistic standards.

“Open to any news organization whose primary function is the gathering and disseminating of news information to the general public. The news story or event must have been originally published online in 2006. Also open to organizations that combine their traditional field with new media efforts or organizations that focus solely on online formats. No college news organization work is eligible.

“Entries must provide a URL(s) for judges to view the news story or event. Entry must include a written narrative describing the organization’s efforts, a description of the news story or event and its components, original date published online, as well as justification of why the entry should be presented an award.

“$50 entry fee. Prize is $10,000 and a trophy.”

Mmm … that would buy a lot of cheap video cameras and other gear!

Entry deadline: Jan. 31, 2007.
