“These awards are important because they encourage and recognize creativity and innovation in building media companies that meld first-rate editorial content with lasting, sustainable business models.”
“The greatest satisfaction when doing this type of project in which we seek that our audience connect uniquely with the content, is the direct feedback we receive from our followers. This award reaffirms what readers have already let us know through their hundreds of thousands of interactions: different and refreshing content also has space in the news work.”
“We’re so thrilled and humbled to receive a WAN-IFRA award for best journalism project. More than 100 journalists spent more than a year tracking down healthcare workers who succumbed to covid 19 and this honor is a lasting tribute to their work and to the families who lost thousands of loved ones.”
“We are very proud to receive these nominations. As news publishers, our contents are meant to be produced and consumed at a very fast pace. Journalism awards like NADMA are opportunities to pause, to reflect on that work and to assess how it impacted our collective lives. It’s the greatest privilege to be recognized by our peers, especially coming from an organization that has an international reach.”
“We are both humbled and honored to be recognized on a global stage with so many outstanding news organizations doing work that matters, work that leads to change and gives a voice to those who otherwise would go unheard.”
