The Society for News Design announced the 2007 winners of its SND.ies awards for excellence in online multimedia journalism at the conclusion of its annual workshop in Boston, Mass.
The judges awarded three Gold medals, six Silvers, and eight Bronzes as well as 13 Awards of Excellence. The winners come from projects from July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007, each vividly displaying aspects of last year’s controversies, tragedies, and highlights.
The New York Times received two Gold Medals, the first in “Breaking News” for an interactive Web site feature called “Plane Crash in New York City,” which recreates the Cory Lidle plane crash in Manhattan last October.
The Times won a second Gold Medal in the “Non-Breaking Features” category for an interactive diagram, “The Met’s New Greek and Roman Galleries.” The diagram offers a panoramic view of the Metropolitan Museum’s Greek and Roman exhibit from different spots of the room as well as an audio tour guide.
The Washington Post received a Gold Medal in “Non-Breaking News” for “Crisis in Darfur Expands,” which narrates personal accounts and living conditions through video and photographs.
