Editor & Publisher Announces the 2014 EPPY Award Finalists

After several weeks of in-depth and thorough judging, the E&P team, along with a prestigious panel of 78 judges, has voted and selected the 2014 EPPY Award finalists. This year’s EPPY Awards saw more than 400 entries competing in 33 diverse categories.

Now in its 19th year, this international contest honors the best media-affiliated websites. The awards also recognize excellence in college and university journalism in three different categories. New categories this year include Best Social Media/Crowd Sourcing, Best Innovation Project on a Website, Best User Experience and Best Online Infographics on a Website.

Each EPPY 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.

EPPY Award winners will be announced live on editorandpublisher.com, Oct. 29, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Below is the complete list of EPPY Award finalists.
