NPPA – BOP winners: Best Multimedia Package

Filed under: journalism, multimedia, online, photography

Among sites with more than 2 million page views per month:

  1. Being A Black Man (washingtonpost.com) Excellent, humongous. Probably the biggest Web package ever made. But of immense journalistic value. I’m not complaining.
  2. The Lifeline (latimes.com)
  3. A Sister’s Gift (Rocky Mountain News) Well done, but long.
  4. (HM) The Vanishing Class (latimes.com) Too many pieces and too disconnected for me to get anything out of this. I don’t like the photo interface at all; it’s too clumsy.
  5. (HM) Altered Oceans (latimes.com)

Among sites with fewer than 2 million page views per month:

  1. Frank Sandoval: A Survival Story (San Jose Mercury News)
  2. Jordan’s War (roanoke.com)
  3. AIDS Orphans (South Florida Sun-Sentinel)
  4. (HM) Real to Reel (The Post-Crescent, Appleton, Wisc.) This blog features Mike De Sisti’s video work, which is really charming.

Among unaffiliated, and Web-only, journalism sites:

  1. Kingsley’s Crossing (MediaStorm) I like this story even though it’s so long.
  2. Atacama Stories (UNC Chapel Hill; see the credits page) A team from UNC produces an amazing project every summer via a partnership with a university abroad.
  3. Bloodline (Kristen Ashburn/MediaStorm)

I hate to be the one to say this. But there’s something wrong with the results. Nearly all of the sites who are listed as less than 2 million page views per month, I think, are quite larger than that. I’ve looked around a bit, and I think the problem is the instructions given by NPPA on where to enter. I’ve written about it here.

Am I missing something?
