IE School of Communication in the Online Media Awards

Written on June 19, 2013 by Pedro Cifuentes in News

Last week in London, inside the beautiful Emirates football stadium, the Online Media Awards held their annual ceremony, which purpose is to recognise the best sites in online news and journalism. The event, which is sponsored by IE School of Communication, attracted entries from some of the world’s leading websites, including Al Jazeera, The Huffington Post, The Guardian, The Times, CNN, New York Times, Sky, Channel 4 / ITN, ITV, Sunday Times, BBC and Reuters, to name a few.

Our Master in Digital Journalism’s director, Pedro Cifuentes, presented four awards (Best Specialist Site for Journalism, Best Local/Regional News Site, Best Video Journalism, Best Video Site) and had the chance to explain its perspective to leading professionals in the field, some of which already teach in our programme throughout the year. The best speeches during the night emphasized the amazing level of creativity and professionalism shown by digital journalists working in big and small projects, which also deserved prizes, such as the Chairman Award, in spite of the hazards brought by the world financial crisis and the transition to new journalistic and information business models. Never has information been more crucial, nor proper journalism more relevant.

The complete list of awards, nominees and commendations can be found here. We recommend a good look at the projects mentioned and involved!

Before leaving, here´s a smiling picture with BBC News On Demand website producer, winner of the Best Video Journalism prize.
