Excellence in New Media

First Place presented to Susan Hogan/Albach, reporter; Kim Ritzenthaler, photographer and Karen Dee Davis, multimedia editor The Dallas Morning News www.dallasnews.com, “The Gay Divide”

Judges Comments: “Offering a stunning photography, a compelling interface and sobering, introspective music, this presentation is a powerful example of taking advantage of the medium to tell very personal stories. It’s a balanced presentation, journalistically and graphically, and truly a creative use of the web, deserving top honors.”

Second Place presented to Jim Buzinski, Cyd Zeigler, www.outsports.com, “OutSports.com”

Judges Comments: “A great example of service journalism for the sports fan – this comprehensive sports site services gay people through its reportage of recreational club sports across the country. Clear design, clean navigation, crisp commentary on pro sports, too.”

Third Place presented to Mario Rodriguez Guerra, James J. Lynn Diaz, www.orgulloboricua.net, “Orgulloboricua”

Judges Comments: “The energy from its splash page to the comprehensive content are obvious reasons this must be the go-to site for homosexuals in Puerto Rico, combining its service journalism, news and community information.”
