Online Journalism Awards Call For Entries
The Online News Association, the world's largest membership organization of digital journalists,
and the University of Miami's School of Communication today opened their call for entries for the 2009 Online Journalism
Awards (OJAs), emblematic of the best in online journalism.
This year, ONA has introduced changes to acknowledge the important role of emerging technology, the influence of the independent
digital journalist and the growth of community reporting efforts. Six awards now come with a total of $30,000 in prize money,
courtesy of the Gannett Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the General Excellence in Online Journalism
Award has expanded to include "micro sites."
The OJAs are the only comprehensive set of journalism prizes honoring excellence in digital journalism. Past winners
have included major media, international and independent sites and individuals producing innovative
work in multimedia
storytelling. This year's honorees will be announced on the final night of ONA09, the Online News Association
Conference and Awards Banquet, Oct. 1-3 in San Francisco. More
