Editor & Publisher Announces the 2018 EPPY Award Finalists

After several weeks of in-depth and thorough judging, the E&P team, along with a prestigious panel of judges, has voted and selected the 2018 EPPY Award finalists. This year’s EPPY Awards saw more than 300 entries competing in 30 diverse categories.

Now in its 23rd year, this international contest honors the best digital-media websites. The awards also recognize excellence in college and university journalism in three different categories.

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, Wed. Oct. 24, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Below is the complete list of EPPY Award finalists.

    For this reader on the other side of the pond Michael Daly shows that America was, and is, always great. As the Irish Nobel poet Seamus Heaney wrote – “Between my finger and my thumb / The squat pen rests / I’ll dig with it ” God Save America.
