Today the Online News association announced the finalists for the 2013 ONA awards and AxisPhilly is a finalist in three categories! I’m most proud that the AVI Map is a finalist, along with FactCheck.org’s coverage of the 2012 presidential debates and Iran Election Watch, in the “Planned News/Event, Small” category.
AxisPhilly is also a finalist in “Explanatory Reporting, Small”, for our coverage of the switch to the Actual Value Initiative, and in “General Excellence in Online Journalism, Small.”
Congratulations to all other finalists. I won’t be able to make it to the conference this year but I’ll be following the award ceremony from home.
