NYTimes.com, Boston.com, and BostonWorks — an employment site — were recognized with Digital Edge Awards from the Newspaper Association of America, The New York Times Co. announced today.
Additionally, NYTimes.com has received two awards from the Missouri School of Journalism’s Pictures of the Year International competition and six Malofiej Infographics awards from the Society of News Design of Spain.
“We’re honored to have NYTimes.com’s depth and breadth of content recognized by these awards,” Leonard M. Apcar, editor in chief of NYTimes.com, said in a statement. “From the staff photographers to the reporters, editors and graphics artists in the print newsroom, to the online producers in nearly every section of the site who have produced high-quality content in the past year, these are truly a team achievement.”
“Our teams and our fans make Boston the best sports city in the country, and we are honored to take a place beside them as the best sports Web site,” Teresa Hanafin, editor in chief of Boston.com, The Boston Globe’s site, said in the statement.
In the over-250,000 circulation category of the Digital Edge Awards, NYTimes.com won the Best Overall News Site for the second year in a row, and Best Real Estate Site (www.nytimes.com/realestate). Boston.com won Best Sports Site (www.boston.com/sports), and BostonWorks (www.bostonworks.com) won Best Employment Site. The Digital Edge or “Edgie” awards are administered by the New Media Federation of the NAA and were announced on Sunday at the NAA’s annual Connections interactive media conference.
NYTimes.com was also recognized last week by POYi for Times photographer Stephen Crowley’s photographic memoir of his work covering presidential campaigns from 1992 to 2004, “Campaign Moments,” and for NYTimes.com’s overall accomplishment in multimedia and photojournalism in 2004. This marks the second consecutive year that NYTimes.com has earned the “Best Use of Multimedia” honor.
