New awards to small publishers per category

You'll notice the following question has been added to the application process:

"How many employees does your company have? "

This will allow for a small publisher to be awarded in each category in order to expand the competition to media that are doing an excellent job but do not compete on equal terms and resources compared to larger media.

How does it work?

  • Companies with newsrooms of less than 100 journalists will be eligible.
  • This award will be given to the small publisher that has obtained the highest score in each of the categories of the competition.
  • If your site or newspaper is a part of a larger company, please count only the journalists for your division.

If you have any doubts please contact us.
