North American Digital Media Awards 2021

North American Digital Media Awards 2021

NEW: recognition to small and local media in every category!


In order to further expand the competition to media companies that have launched outstanding digital projects but that often do not compete on equal terms and resources compared to larger media, this year’s edition of WAN-IFRA’s North American Digital Media Awards will allow for small and local publishers to be additionally awarded in each category


How does it work?

  • During this year’s application process, companies with less than 100 journalists in their newsroom will be considered as “Small and Local Media”.

  • As usual, each category will award the project with the highest score amongst all the presented entries.

  • Additionally, in each category, the highest scoring project presented by small and local media companies will also be announced as the “Small and Local Media Winner”.

  • If your news outlet is a part of a larger media group, please only consider the journalists for your outlet’s newsroom.

If you have any doubts please contact us.


* WAN-IFRA reserves the right to determine whether a company is small or large
