Editor & Publisher Announces the 2012 EPPY Award Finalists
Posted: 10/24/2012  |  By: Editor & Publisher
After four weeks of in-depth and thorough judging, the E&P team, along with a prestigious panel of 68 judges, has voted and selected the 2012 EPPYTM Award finalists.  

Now in its 17th year, this international contest honors the best media-affiliated websites across 30 diverse categories. The awards also recognize excellence in college and university journalism in three different categories, including Best College Newspaper Website.  

Each EPPYTM entry is judged on its own merits within a particular category. Finalists must receive a score in the top one third of the average score across all categories within their division (1 million and over unique monthly visitors and under 1 million unique monthly visitors). As a result, there may be no winner in categories not reaching this threshold.

EPPYTM Award winners will be announced live on editorandpublisher.com, Oct. 30, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. EST.
