The Tiziano Project Takes Home Award at 2011 Online Journalism Banquet
The Tiziano Project beat both CNN and NPR in this category — not too shabby for an organization powered entirely by volunteers!
More than 400 journalists, technology gurus, and media professionals were in attendance, everyone from CNN to student media outlets.
The OJA banquet was launched in 2000, and is the only event honoring excellence in digital journalism. Administered by the Online News Association, in partnership with the University of Miami’s School of Communication, the banquet awards cover independent, community, nonprofit, and mainstream media sites, and provide a total prize purse worth more than $30,000 (courtesy of the Gannett Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation).
