This year’s EPPY Awards received more than 400 entries across more than 40 diverse categories, including best use of sponsored/ branded content, best use of social media/crowdsourcing, best radio & TV Websites and more.
Entries came from media companies large and small world-wide, that included local news publishing, broadcast networks, cable news & sports networks, international pureplay Websites, niche content publishers, and many colleges and universities.
“It is our honor and pleasure to continue this tradition for the news publishing industry, stated Mike Blinder, Publisher of Editor and Publisher Magazine, the host of the EPPY's. “Now in its 26th year, we continue to spotlight and recognize the best in digital media.”
The 2021 panel of 43 judges included media leaders in website design, marketing/advertising, editorial, technology, education, media management, consulting and more.
“It was an honor to lead this year’s EPPY Awards judging,” stated Christian Hendricks, Managing Partner at Extol Digital and President of the Local Media Consortium. “The mission and impact of high-quality journalism were truly and fully exemplified from newsrooms across the world.”
“Being a judge is sometimes a thankless and tireless task, stated Hendricks. “In the case of the EPPY’s, however, there is always a hidden reward for each judge - a reaffirmation of the positive impact journalism has on people and communities.”
