E&P wishes to congratulate winners of its 21st EPPY Awards. This year’s EPPY Awards saw more than 300 entries. Winners were selected from an international list of nominations to honor the best digital media websites across 31 categories, in addition to categories for excellence in college and university journalism. Each category was separated into websites with more than 1 million monthly unique visitors, and those that receive less than 1 million. Winners must receive a score in the top one-third of the average score across all categories within their division. As a result, there may be no winner in categories not reaching this threshold.

We also thank the judges who took part in this year’s EPPY Awards selections. EPPY judges are leaders in all facets of media, including website design, marketing/advertising, editorial, technology, education, and management.

    E&P Annual touts that these awards recognize “excellence in college and university journalism.” Yet in recent years, what gets recognized are not student media websites or content, but academically-run news services. This isn’t to knock the exemplary work of the NYCity News Service or News21 at Arizona State, this year’s winners. But it’s not surprising that websites run or overseen by full-time professionals or faculty win E&P’s awards. I find it disappointing that E&P chooses to award such university-run news services over the websites of student media operations which are also training and developing the next generation of journalists.
